  "I think the individual market will fail. I don't see a death spiral, I see them sitting out of the market. It's possible the private market off-exchange will grow or be more of a player. If either of those markets improves, it will take away from the ACA exchange,"
-Kevin Fitzgerald, Partner & Insurance Lawyer, Foley & Lardner


According to the Congressional Budget Office's estimate. Monthly costs for insurance would go up by 15-20% at first, due to the elimination of the requirement for most people to have insurance or else pay a tax penalty. After 2018, CBO estimates that average premiums would actually drop by 10% by 2026 compared to current law. That is because the lower prices for younger people would encourage more to sign up. By contrast, the law would “substantially [raise] premiums for older people.”
