Don't Bail Out Obamacare

In an effort to win the support of health insurance companies during the debate over Obamacare in 2009, three health insurer bailout provisions were written into the bill to compensate health insurance companies for insuring high-cost consumers in the Obamacare exchanges. These three bailout provisions include risk corridors, reinsurance, and cost-sharing subsidies, that combined, could cost taxpayers $170 billion over the next decade. The risk corridor and reinsurance provisions expire in 2016.
