Bookmark and Share

This Manhattan Institute analysis, conducted with NYSHealth support, provides a vision of a market-based exchange in New York. The report argues that the exchange should function as a clearinghouse for all qualified health plans. Its recommendations include greater flexibility in insurance design, an expansion of age-banding to allow lower cost plans for younger and healthier enrollees, and a defined contribution mechanism for small businesses.
