Public option and private profits

Fabio Milani ()

Applied Health Economics and Health Policy, 2010, vol. 8, issue 3, 155-165

Abstract: The results reveal the market expectation of a negative effect of the public option on the value of health insurance companies. The magnitude of the effect suggests a downward adjustment in the expected profits of health insurers of around 13%, but it does not support more calamitous scenarios.
