Health care to cost some young Idahoans more

A 32-year-old owner of a small software company pays $275 a month for his and his wife's health insurance. A Boise State University business student sends about $130 of her student-loan money to her health insurer each month. These Idahoans could pay much more for health insurance next year, in part because of new federal rules that affect how much insurers can charge people based on age for coverage they buy on their own for themselves and their families. Known as "age band compression," this shift will transfer some of the costs of health insurance from older Americans to people in their 20s and 30s.
