Potential Impacts Of The Most Generous Expansion Proposals

The most generous options would build off each other. The first would increase cost-sharing on premiums, the second would add an individual mandate and penalty, and the third would defray insurance company risks for costly patients. Policy 1 would increase enrollment around 290,000 with $220 million in new state funding; Policy 2 would add 650,000 at a cost of $2.6 billion, and Policy 3 would add 760,000 at a cost of $4.2 billion.
