Insurance companies cannot charge the younger person with a pre-existing condition. The cost of that person’s uninsured healthcare will be borne by the existing policyholders. Therefore, the existing healthcare premiums will rise because young people will only secure healthcare insurance if they have serious or expensive medical conditions.
 
The more fascinating question is why are the healthcare insurance companies exposing this issue at the eleventh hour? I suspect it's because they are now realizing that the government is backing away from a truly universal healthcare policy where all people must purchase insurance. You can't have universal health insurance unless you force all people to pay. It's against the American way to force citizens to purchase products and services they absolutely don't want. My fellow Americans, this is the irreconcilable dilemma of universal healthcare.
