When will Americans get health insurance?
The Affordable Care Act is set to kick off its second year with an explosion of coverage and prices, but consumers won’t be able to get the same coverage that they have today until the end of 2021.
That’s the latest forecast from a group of health insurance analysts at the Boston Consulting Group.
In a report published Thursday, the BGC predicted that the ACA’s exchanges would open in 2020, but that enrollment would lag well behind the pace of previous years.
In 2018, for example, more than 70 million people had enrolled in health insurance through the exchanges.
But that’s not likely to be the case in 2020.
The average age of enrollees in the new insurance marketplaces is expected to drop to 25.3 years, the group said.
By the end in 2020 — the end when the first set of federal regulations will take effect — the average age will fall to 24.4 years.
By 2021, the average number of enrolments is expected at 7.3 million.
While the numbers are still too early to say how many Americans will qualify for the health care plan in 2020 and 2021, it’s clear that the number of people buying coverage in the marketplaces will rise sharply over the next decade.
“We have seen a significant expansion of health coverage in both the states and the country over the past decade, and it is likely that we will see even greater coverage expansion over the course of 2020,” said Andrew Liveris, chief investment officer of the BMG Global Insights & Analytics, in a statement.
The BGC forecast has the average American family earning $40,000 or less earning $2,500 per year in 2019.
By 2020, the gap is expected reach $3,300.
But even if average income drops by $300 a year, the insurance market will still be able buy insurance for more than half of Americans.
The group said that by 2021, Americans will be able “to get a full-cost plan at the same average monthly premiums as in 2019.”
That would leave more than 7 million people who don’t have health insurance and would otherwise qualify for coverage.
The report said that the increase in premiums for the next two years will likely be even larger.
In 2019, premiums are expected to rise $3.5 billion, an increase of 20 percent, or an average of $4,400, the report said.
In 2020, premiums will rise by a whopping $4.5 trillion, an average increase of nearly 40 percent.
The increase will have a massive impact on millions of people who live in areas where the health insurance market is already struggling.
About 4 million people live in states that have yet to open their insurance markets, according to the report.
The other states that haven’t yet opened their markets are Nevada, West Virginia, and South Carolina.
That means that they could see even more people leave the market, said Jennifer Reif, an insurance analyst at the American Action Forum, a nonpartisan think tank that focuses on the insurance industry.
“The insurance industry has not been able to provide affordable, affordable health care for the average family,” Reif said.
It’s not clear how many people would qualify for subsidies to buy coverage through the market.
The federal government subsidizes most health insurance premiums for people making between $50,000 and $100,000 a year.
But the subsidies are not linked to income levels and can go toward higher premiums.
That makes it difficult for people who make less than $50 to qualify.
The BGC projected that the average annual premium would rise by about $1,200 in 2020 after taking into account inflation and the new tax on high-income households.
But if you had a family of four earning $100 a year and had a deductible of $1.4 million, that would cost you $4 in 2020 compared to the previous year, according the BGM report.
In 2021, premiums for those earning between $200,000 to $300,000 would rise $2.5 million.
But in 2020 those earning $300 or more would still get coverage, even though they’ll have to pay more for it.
In 2023, those earning over $300 would get coverage at an average annual cost of $3 in 2020 from the tax on higher-income Americans.
In 2024, premiums would be about $4 more than in 2019, but the tax will be offset by a reduction in premium subsidies.
The CBO said that subsidies for people earning between 200,000 dollars and 400,000 are still not fully offset by tax credits that help people buy private health insurance, and that they will remain underfunded until 2025.
There are still a few big hurdles to overcome.
Many Americans still won’t have access to a health insurance plan, and most won’t qualify for government subsidies to help pay for it, the CBO said.
And it’s still unclear how many plans will be available.
