On this AEI Events Podcast, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Ohio Gov. John Kasich discuss their proposal to stabilize the individual insurance market and to make a series of other health reforms with Vox’s Sarah Kliff. The two governors stressed the importance of stabilizing the individual insurance market in the near term and maintaining a bipartisan approach. They spoke of the need for compromise as the health care debate moves forward.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) changed how the health insurance market works, making coverage available to everyone regardless of their health status. This year’s premium increase and the departure of insurers from some local markets have raised concerns that those markets are unstable. Uncertainty about the federal government’s commitment to promoting this market and paying insurers for new cost-sharing reductions required by the ACA has created new concerns for 2018.

This event, cosponsored by AEI and the Center for American Progress, occurred on September 8, 2017. Watch the full event video here, which includes an expert panel featuring Joe Antos (AEI), Cori Uccello (American Academy of Actuaries), Topher Spiro (CAP), and Avik Roy (Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity) not included in the podcast.
