Coalition forms to back health insurance bills
(2008-01-16)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A debate about whether to change rules
governing Michigan's health insurance market for individuals is
escalating.
A coalition supporting legislation backed by Blue Cross Blue
Shield of Michigan was announced Wednesday. Consumers for Fair and
Affordable Insurance Reform includes business, labor and other
groups.
Opposition includes Aetna and some other insurance companies,
and the AARP.
Each side accuses the other of being directed by financial
self-interest.
Supporters say the bills pending in the Senate would provide
price and coverage protection for people who buy their own health
insurance.
Opponents argue the bills unfairly aid Blue Cross without
helping consumers.
