2020 Policy Questions: Health Care — Finance Memos

Progressives believe that revisions to the ACA would not substantially improve health insurance. Centrists believe Medicare for All is fiscally unsustainable and could lead to unforeseen outcomes. Guess What! They both might be right.

Questions for Centrists: State health exchange markets created by the Affordable Care Act provides health insurance to roughly 5 percent of the working-age population. Employer-based health insurance remains the dominant provider of health insurance to this segment of the population. Do you favor reforms that would substantially expand the role of state exchanges in providing health insurance to more workers, especially workers at small firms? Would you acknowledge that a reform program that modestly increases the role of state exchanges but leave employer-based insurance as the dominant health insurance market will have a relatively modest impact on health insurance problems?
