Contrast that with the recommendations offered in our PolicyPoints on health care, or the recently released State Legislators’ Guide to Health Insurance Solutions from CAHI. These include recommendation that cost little or nothing, but would reduce the cost of care for individuals and families, like
- Reducing mandates (rather than more, like the slacker mandate) or offering mandate-lite insurance
- Equalizing the tax code for those who don’t receive health coverage from their employer
- List billing
- Allowing PA residents to buy insurance from other states
Now is the time to truly reform our system of health care, not just add a few more government programs.
