  •  well it would be good to find out for real (0+ / 0-)

    wouldn't it?

    There would be no pre-existing conditions and no medical underwriting, presumably the pools would be large enough to spread the risk.

    so all the benefits would be paid by premiums, with no effect on the budget? that doesn't sound possible.

    •  actually true... (0+ / 0-)

      but not quite that simple, the actuarial value of each community band by age would be divided by the number of insureds to come up with the community rated premium...so on a cash basis in a particular year it could have a small affect and then adjusted in the following year with a new premium to make up the difference...
