Notes: The prediction model is based on age, health, gender, smoking status, whether the person's state has a high-risk insurance pool, allows the use of health status in setting rates, regulates premium increases or requires guaranteed issue or guaranteed renewal, and a measure of the cost of medical care in the person's county of residence. See Hadley and Reschovsky (2002) for details.
