ting researchers about the consumer driven policies.
Robert Hurley, vice president of strategic initiatives at eHealth Inc., a seller of health insurance on the Internet, based in Mountain View, California is of the view that “``One of the advantages I've seen is that these women now have more freedom to seek out alternative forms of care instead of being stuck in a traditional form, where what the doctor says goes.”
Although there are 247 million coverage of insurance of he people and the premium going up by 7% the people using these insurance have come down to an extent. The rising cost and the availability of generic medicine over the counter have also resulted in the states like Minnesota incurring loss over their health plans. Almost close to 86 million dollars.
According to Julie Brunner, executive director of the Minnesota Council of Health Plans, “This double-digit increase in overall medical care spending reinforces the need to continue significant investments in efforts to improve health care quality, value and individual health. This is an issue where every individual contributes to the solution.”
A study conducted revealed that there was a 15% increase in inpatient hospital costs and the emergency department incurred a jump of 14%. Although the insurance coverage rose by 1%. The enrollment for state run plan came down by 8% consumer driven plans rose by 50%.
Sara Collins, assistant vice president for the Commonwealth Fund's Program on the Future of Health Insurance, said in a prepared statement that “These findings show that comprehensive health care coverage that doesn't require high out-of-pocket costs is vital to ensuring that women get the care they need to be healthy,” she also goes on to add “As policymakers consider health care reform initiatives, they should consider plan designs that will result in meaningful, affordable, and equitable access to health care for everyone.”
