Debate continues over Michigan health insurance bills
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A state Senate panel could begin voting on
proposed changes to Michigan's individual health insurance market
as early as this week.
But it might take more time for lawmakers to strike a compromise
from competing proposals.
Attorney General Mike Cox said Monday he is among those favoring
a Senate plan supporters say would maintain oversight of rates set
by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. That plan would not include
some changes Blue Cross wants, such as a high-risk pool to cover
individuals turned down by other insurers.
Blue Cross favors a competing Senate plan that includes a
high-risk pool and other changes.
The House already has passed Blue Cross-backed legislation
critics say unfairly benefits the company.
