“(I) IN GENERAL.—The applicable percentage otherwise determined under clause (i) shall be multiplied by the age adjustment value determined under subclause (II).

“(II) AGE ADJUSTMENT VALUE.—The age adjustment value for any taxpayer is the average of the age rate adjustments for all individuals which have coverage described in paragraph (2)(A) with respect to the taxpayer, divided by the maximum age rate adjustment allowed under section 2701(a)(1)(A)(iii) of the Public Health Service Act.

“(III) AGE RATE ADJUSTMENT.—The age rate adjustment for any individual shall be determined using a single national age rating curve which shall be specified in guidance by the Secretary of Health and Human Services and shall reflect market patterns in the individual market in accordance with section 2701(a)(1)(A)(iii) of the Public Health Service Act.”.
