Insurance Commissioner Says Federal Health Care Reform Necessary to Fix a Broken System
Date:9/8/2009

s many other elements, many of which are cost-control measures designed to slow the rate of growth in health care spending. Other provisions address Medical Assistance and Medicare reforms, expand use of electronic medical records and establish new mechanisms, such as insurance exchanges, that make it easier for individuals and small businesses to enjoy the same range of choices that large employers typically offer their employees through a cafeteria plan.

"Congress still faces some tough choices -- especially on cost control. But if they listen to the experts and avoid excess partisanship, there is a golden opportunity to set a new foundation for a health care system in which insurance companies cover the sick as well as the healthy, and all Americans accept personal responsibility for obtaining insurance coverage, much as they already do, in most states, for auto insurance.

"Once these principles are in place, states should be given flexibility to implement the reforms," said Ario, noting that the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, or NAIC, was united in supporting the three core reforms even though there were significant differences among the states on other health insurance issues.

"Our nation is too vast and too varied for one regulatory regime to fit all needs," Ario concluded. "Congress should allow states wide latitude to enforce their respective laws when those laws provide greater consumer protections than those afforded by federal law."
