USA Today: Another View: Individual mandate vs. 'do not treat'

In the early- and mid-1990s, nine states passed "guaranteed issue" laws that required insurance companies to write policies on demand. Without a mandate that required all citizens to buy policies, though, premiums and deductibles soared, enrollment fell and many companies dropped coverage in those states. Vermont went from 33 insurance companies to two. In the first three years New Hampshire's law was in effect, the number of insurers writing individual policies in the state dropped from 12 to five, and they offered only high-deductible, catastrophic coverage. Premiums in New Jersey rose as much as 155% over four years.
