Lifestyle Solidarity in Health Insurances

Should people who live unhealthy pay more for their health insurance? In my Bachelor European Public Health at Maastricht University I challenge this question via a literature review.

My answer. Lifestyle solidarity in health insurances can be limited based on beliefs, but is unlikely to affect public health positively. A positive alternative less lifestyle solidarity but positive for public health is taxing unhealthy products.
