The big insurance companies aren’t leaving much choice: we need the public option. Congress can pass this right after the election, using reconciliation.
Health insurance: Big medical insurers to stop selling new child-only policies
Major health insurance companies in California and other states have decided to stop selling policies for children rather than comply with a new federal healthcare law that bars them from rejecting youngsters with preexisting medical conditions.
Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna Inc. and others will halt new child-only policies in California, Illinois, Florida, Connecticut and elsewhere as early as Thursday when provisions of the nation’s new healthcare law take effect, including a requirement that insurers cover children under age 19 regardless of their health histories.
Idiot corporatists in the Congress thought the insurance companies were their friends.
