MEMO: Why We Need the Individual Mandate in New Health Reform Law

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–April 8, 2010.  In light of conservatives’ recent calls for repealing the individual mandate contained in the new heath reform law, a new memo from Jonathan Gruber finds that without the individual mandate, the entire structure of reform would fail. According to Dr. Gruber, removing the mandate would:

  • Reduce the legislation’s insurance coverage gains by more than two-thirds, so that reform would cover fewer than one-fifth of the uninsured
  • Cause the reduction in employer-sponsored insurance to quadruple
  • Raise individual premiums in the exchange by 40 percent
