Community Rating mitigates year to year premium pricing swings. You can use Medicaid health plans to provide coverage but they need to provide a “good” network of providers. State subsidy will be required until you reach a critical mass of enrollment usually 50,000 member or more. State must have the core organizational competencies to manage the program. You must expect some “pent up” demand from the uninsured.
