Good reading

The LA Times has been running an excellent series the past two days on the insurance industry.

Yesterday’s piece was about the horrors of the individual insurance market, a place where many more people would end up if employer-based health coverage was to continue to erode — as it has been — and would be hastened if John McCain’s health plan were put into place.

Today’s installment is about insurance companies that also double as bankers, managing consumers’ Health Savings Accounts – a very, very lucrative business and exactly the wrong way we want to go — putting every patient in his/her own silo rather than spreading risk, as insurance is supposed to do.

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