Debate continues over Michigan health insurance proposals
AP/Chicago Tribune, March 20, 2008
The debate about changing Michigan's rules guiding health insurance for individuals who aren't covered by employer or government plans may last much longer because the Legislature is considering at least three separate plans. Some of the debate about the differing proposals centers on whether to create a high-risk pool to cover individuals turned down by other insurers. The pool would require all insurers participating in the individual market to help cover losses when they reach a certain point.
