32. link please. they don't get wads of cash from the US government up front just because.

 

they have to prove their case. What actually happens is at each state exchange level, insurers who pay out less than anticipated, they kick money back in to the government program. Insurers who pay out more would receive money from the government.

There is a possibility that the people signing up across states will end up representing a variety of risk pools and will even each other out. We shall see. The penalties that kick in will also go toward payment. There is also a slight tax on all plans sold under the exchange which also creates a resevoir of cash for possibly higher risk pools.
