The Lewin Group Presents 'McCain and Obama Health Policies: Cost and Coverage Compared' Analysis
Date:10/8/2008

ion people by expanding Medicaid for low-income adults and

creating a new national plan. Private insurance coverage would decline by

21.6 million people under the Obama proposal, as employers and

individuals shift to a new lower-cost national plan.

3. Under the McCain plan, families will save an average of $1,411 per year,

reflecting that the tax credit will generally be larger than the income

taxes paid on employer sponsored benefits. Families will save an average

of $426 per year under the Obama Plan.

The candidates' plans differ sharply on the regulation of insurance. The Obama plan requires insurers to offer guaranteed issue coverage for all applicants and prohibits the use of health status in setting premiums for employers and individuals. The McCain plan enables individuals and employers to purchase coverage from a state permitting the use of health status in setting premiums, even though they live in a state that now limits or prohibits the practice. The McCain plan then provides federal subsidies for high-risk pools that would be available to those denied coverage due to health status.
