This paper outlines several centrist ideas on how to improve health insurance markets in the United States. The proposals discussed here include – (1) new incentives to encourage continuous health insurance coverage, (2) alterations to rules governing health savings accounts and high deductible health plans, (3) rule changes leading to reduced reliance on employer based insurance, and (4) government subsidies for certain expensive health care cases, which are not easily treated by narrow-network HMOs. The new subsidies for contributions to health savings accounts and expensive health care cases are partially paid for by reductions in tax expenditures on ACA and employer-based insurance.
