Health Insurance Market More Stabilized Than Before

2019 Outlook: Obamacare Markets ‘Over the Hump’ From Early Years
– Bloomberg Law: Health Law & Business

Manatt’s Joel Ario, a managing director with our Manatt Health team, spoke with Bloomberg Law: Health Law & Business for an article about the stabilization of the Affordable Care Act’s markets.

The launch of Obamacare ushered in a brief period of insurer losses and premium increases, noted the publication, but the program has found level ground as markets have settled in and become more predictable. Ario discussed this steadiness in talking about state coverage of high-cost claims and risk pools.

“The markets are better in the states that have done things to strengthen their risk pools,” said Ario.
