All the young healthy people will sign up, so that will lower costs for everyone!!! Wait.
From the ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS: 'Consumers buying health insurance through MNsure are getting older, according to data released Wednesday from the latest round of open enrollment, a troubling sign that could mean increasing costs. The state's health insurance exchange celebrated meeting its goals for private coverage signups after enrollment closed at the end of January, finally hitting a critical goal after two years of setbacks. But the details behind those numbers show the share of residents 55 and older who bought insurance through MNsure have jumped by 7 percent since 2015, while the pool of younger enrollees shrank.
Signing up young adults between 18 and 34 - dubbed "young invincibles," too healthy to buy insurance - is critical to keeping prices down because the healthier enrollees help offset higher costs of older customers.
