Sen. Max Baucus: Answer 10 Questions About Mandatory Purchase of Health Insurance Including Why the Public Was Excluded From Today's Committee Meeting
Date:5/14/2009

t-of-pocket expenses, how can you prevent this?
  • Your report says that, with few exceptions, hefty tax penalties will be levied against Americans that don't either purchase coverage or get it through their job. Is it true that only Christian Scientists would avoid tax penalties without having to prove their income?
  • One of the options that the committee is considering is to not require any employers to chip in for health insurance. Why isn't the committee considering an option where Americans would not be forced to buy coverage?
  • Your plan focuses on "wellness" services. But if patients face a $5000 deductible how will they pay for treatment for severe obesity, diabetes prevention, or even effective smoking cessation?
  • Your plan does not clearly protect state laws providing access to necessary health care services like a California woman's right to visit an OB-GYN, a New Jersey child's access to a Hepatitis B inoculation, a Tennessee patient's coverage for diabetes treatment, and other benefits including screenings for cervical and prostate cancers. Will states be allowed to require additional health benefits beyond those required under federal rules, or will federal rules pre-empt more expansive state benefits?

  • ** Read Consumer Watchdog's letter to President Obama and Sens. Kennedy and Baucus warning them not to agree to agree to the health insurers' plan to gut state health care laws. http://www.consumerwatchdog.org/patients/articles/?storyId=27228

    ** Read Consumer Watchdog's letter to U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) urging that he continue to protect patients consistent with the principles he has articulated during his 40 year career.
