An Urban Institute analysis found that average premiums would increase by almost 37% next year and the number of uninsured Americans would rise by 9.4 million if cost-sharing reduction payments are ended amid other policy uncertainty and insurers exit the individual market in response. In another scenario involving discontinuation of CSRs, insurers would remain in markets and add a surcharge on silver plan premiums, pushing up the cost by 23% next year, and about 600,000 more people would sign up for plans because they would receive greater tax credits to cover the cost.
