Idaho Senate Set to Bring Home Divisiveness of Health Care Fight
Date:3/8/2010

  • 221,000 uninsured; nearly 90% have jobs with many unable to afford soaring health insurance premiums.  Prices will increase by 40% in the next few years and double by 2016; 27% of Idaho's 213,000 Medicare beneficiaries have fallen into the Medicare prescription drug "doughnut hole," forced to pay 100% for their medications, leaving many to stop taking them.  Prescription drugs costs increased 11% over the last few months.
  • 400,000 Idahoans spend 10% of their income on health care while roughly 100,000 spend upwards of 25%.  Soaring health care costs will force families to pay even more in the coming years, leaving many to simply go without needed health coverage.
