Health Insurance “Options”

Posted in DC Reform, Health Reform Policy Proposals by raisingwomensvoices on April 16, 2009

Last Sunday, a piece in the Wall Street Journal took a strong stand against a public health insurance option. The writer complains that government–namely Democrats–will coerce consumers from private insurance to government insurance until a public option is the only ‘option’ left.

Kudos to Our Bodies Ourselves Executive Director Judy Norsigian who, in response, highlights the fact that a single-payer plan is routinely overlooked as an option, and that oftentimes it is the private insurers who do the coercing, denying consumers full adequate coverage.
