Health Care Policy and Law

An individual mandate is a requirement that individuals purchase health insurance. This is not a new idea. President Clinton proposed an individual mandate in 1993 as part of his Health Security Act, and other competing proposals at the time, including those supported by Republicans, also included an individual mandate.

While the individual mandate is not a new idea and has been championed by both Republicans and Democrats at different times in history, it has proven to be a politically perilous route to reducing the number of uninsured. A December 2013 poll found that 58% of respondents opposed the individual mandate, with most (84%) of Republicans against the mandate and a slim majority (57%) of Democrats supporting the mandate.

List and discuss the alternatives to the individual mandate that might accomplish the same goals without engendering so much political turmoil. Could policymakers have designed an incentive system that would be as effective as a mandate? What are the pros and cons of using a mandate versus an incentive? Can you think of incentives to encourage enrollment that have occurred in other parts of the healthcare system?
