Washington, D.C. (Vocus) February 22, 2010 -- America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) President and CEO Karen Ignagni this afternoon made the following remarks as prepared for delivery on the status of health care reform:

“There is an enormous amount of attention being paid right now to premium increases for people who obtain coverage in the individual insurance market – which represents about seven percent of those with private coverage today. This concern is understandable, especially at a time when people across the country are struggling to make ends meet and having to make tough choices in their personal budgets.

“The central policy question that should be asked is: what is driving these increases and whether the measures being proposed will work? Families are counting on policymakers to step up and address the problem so that costs are brought under control and all Americans have health security. Our members want that too.

“But there is a heavy dose of politics at work here. There has been a strenuous effort to focus on health plans because very few policymakers want to take on the real issue of why costs are rising. But they must take on these issues to assure American families and small businesses that health care reform will be affordable and sustainable.

“In addition, a weak economy is causing younger, healthier individuals to drop their insurance. As healthy people forego health insurance, the rates for those Americans who need coverage increases. That is why going into 2009
