Date:8/27/2008

AHIP and Salt Lake Chamber host roundtable discussion as part of national

The roundtable is part of the health insurance industry's Campaign for an American Solution, a new national grassroots and educational initiative to build support for workable health care reform based on core principles shared by the American people: coverage, affordability, quality, value, choice and portability.

Today's discussion with Utah small business owners is the latest in a series of conversations the health insurance industry is having with Americans from all walks of life -- those with coverage and those without, small business owners and employees, union leaders and members, physicians and other providers, and families from diverse communities.
