State Senate Fails Idahoans Struggling With High Health Care Costs
Date:3/9/2010

>"AARP commends the Idaho Senators who did what was right and took a stand against this disastrous bill," added Wordelman.  "Those who voted in favor of this bill voted to make Idaho's health care problems worse for children, families and the elderly."

The legislation could have severe and unintended consequences and is strongly opposed by AARP because it:

  • Does nothing to address the real health care problems Idahoans face, high prescription drug and insurance prices and the high cost of health care.
  • Contradicts existing state policy that requires all full-time students at state colleges and universities to carry health insurance -- without it they can't enroll.
  • Ties the hands of Idaho legislators with a permanent state law taking aim at a non-existent federal one, which could prevent action on needed state health care issues.
  • Will engage Idaho in costly litigation with little chance for success.
  • Could cost the state over $1.6 billion in federal matching funds for Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), compromising the coverage for 260,000 Idahoans and losing thousands of state health care jobs.
  • Destabilizes Idaho's carefully constructed regulations for the insurance industry.
