Insurers also voiced objections, shared by some other segments of the healthcare industry, about the proposal's call for new fees or taxes that companies would have to pay to help finance the healthcare overhaul. The American Hospital Association, which said its members were still reviewing the plan, praised Baucus' efforts to expand insurance coverage to more people.
