Analysis of the Proposed Health Care Legislation Finds Financial Aspects May be Difficult to Forecast
Date:8/13/2009

Eric Gurr, president and CEO of U4prez.com has done a summary analysis of the health care plan currently under consideration in Congress. After pouring through the entire document, he finds that while many of the objections to the plan are simply not true (There is no coverage for illegal aliens, and the parental education is largely voluntary, and driven at the state level not the federal level) there is still serious concern on the financial side.

(PRWEB) August 13, 2009 -- Eric Gurr, president and CEO of U4prez.com has done a summary analysis of the health care plan currently under consideration in Congress. After pouring through the entire document, he finds that while many of the objections to the plan are simply not true (There is no coverage for illegal aliens, and the parental education is largely voluntary, and driven at the state level not the federal level) there is still serious concern on the financial side.

Gurr's analysis is presented from a business perspective, as opposed to government, and he finds a few glaring omissions in a plan as complex as HR 3200. The analysis offers a more holistic approach (addressing the plan in its entirety as opposed to small components which may be amended).

The most obvious of the omissions are of course a fall-back position should costs far exceed estimates and a pilot program for the entire plan. Gurr makes the case that Congress, The White House, and the CBO would all find it impossible to accurately forecast a realistic price tag without a comprehensive test. Short of more accurate financial data, a fall-back option based on specific spending bench-marks would seem to be an absolute requirement.

Gurr cites several examples from the bill which clearly indicate that not enough time has been devoted to behavioral changes which will affect cost. An excerpt is provided below.
