Kansas Insurance Commissioner, Sandy Praeger, to Appear this Saturday on Cary Hall's Health Insurance Advocate Radio Show
Date:1/8/2009

Hall and Praeger to discuss potential Obama healthcare reforms, Tom Daschle's recent holiday party plans, the dangers of federal regulation, subsidizing healthcare coverage for the 'Super Size Me' crowd and more.

Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) January 8, 2009 -- Sandy Praeger, Insurance Commissioner for the state of Kansas, will appear this Saturday, January 10 at 12 pm CST, on Cary Hall's Health Insurance Advocate program heard in the Midwest on the HIA Network.

Praeger, also the immediate past president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, joins Hall to discuss whether president-elect Obama can effectively reform healthcare in the US, in light of the failing Massachusetts Connector program, a leading model under consideration by the soon-to-be Obama administration.

With senators Kennedy, Bacchus and Daschle proposing healthcare reform plans that experts say do not reflect the current reality of economic crisis in the US, Hall intends to ask Praeger several pointed questions about what the American public might expect to see in the coming months.

Praeger will also discuss the significant value of a state insurance commissioner's office to citizens. With millions of dollars in disputed claims recovered for Kansas citizens in 2008, Praeger is expected to present an air-tight case against a push for placing the insurance industry under a federal regulatory body.

As in other editions of the Health Insurance Advocate program, Hall will address the national diabetes and obesity crises and other serious and costly health conditions generally related to behavioral and lifestyle choices. With 70 percent of chronic illnesses resulting from lifestyle choices, Hall says he looks forward to gaining additional insight from Praeger for how to deal with exorbitant costs incurred by the average healthy consumer on behalf of others who invite poor health and illness due to lifestyle choices.

Hall also plans to discuss self-funded health insurance plans, ever increasing health care utilization, the medical amenities American citizens stand to lose in a national health care scenario, the strength of the insurance industry in the face of surrounding economic crises, and more.

Listeners are encouraged to tune in to the HIA Network, this Saturday at 12 pm CST.
