What Happens If Obamacare Individual Mandate Is Repealed?
Experts agree that the Senate tax bill provision to repeal the mandate would leave more Americans uninsured and increase premiums. However, some say it’s worth it.
Opponents as well as supporters of Obamacare seem to agree on at least one thing.
Repealing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would have a dramatic effect on the nation’s health insurance market.
Most experts concur that the repeal would increase the number of people without health insurance in the United States, drive insurance companies out of the public marketplaces, and increase insurance premiums for most consumers.
