Mandate may spur insurer revenue; profit less sure

AP/Yahoo News, November 20, 2008
A government plan mandating insurance coverage for all Americans could rake in revenue for commercial health insurers, but whether that revenue would trickle down to robust profit growth remains unknown, according to Wall Street analysts. A universal coverage plan could bring the roughly 46 million uninsured people into a coverage pool, but such a plan would lead to government oversight on underwriting. That could place "downward pressure" on profits, analysts said.
