Strange bedfellows

Insurance agent Alan Katz responds on his blog to my recent post about the need for an affordability standard in the context of an individual mandate. In my comments, I did mistakenly lump him in with the Governor and some insurers, who have publicly taken a hard-line “no exemptions” position. Unfortunately, they don’t have blogs I can link to like Mr. Katz does.

He concurs that there’s needs to be a “safety valve” for consumers–as well as in other parts of the reform package. We agree. Now only if we can get the Governor there.

I hope that this article by the AP’s Laura Kurtzman on the individual mandate and affordability helps.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
