Subsidies Drive Consumer Decisions on ACA Coverage

As premiums spiked in 2017, the market where people buy their own health insurance saw a significant decline in enrollment among those who don't qualify for federal subsidies. That is the conclusion of a new federal report that finds the number of unsubsidized individual-market enrollees in the U.S. dropped last year by about 1.27 million people, or roughly 20 percent. Enrollment among those who received tax credits, meanwhile, dropped by just 3 percent, according to the report from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
