AMA Plan Falls Short of a Solution

Posted by admin
Filed under Health Insurance Tips | 9 Comments

The American Medical Association (AMA) recently released a proposal aimed at solving the health insurance crisis present in the country today. With more and more people remaining ininsured, premiums skyrocketing, and coverages being drastically reduced, there has been a cry for reform which as yet remains unanswered according to Morgan Moran, an insurance specialist and advocate for insurance for all Americans. Moran, owner of Florida Health Insurance Web, a website that offers free quotes and insurance counseling, is a firm believer that the government needs to intervene with a “healthcare bail out” along the lines of similar interventions which are being proposed recently.

    Obamaâ??s plan will reduce a typical familyâ??s premium by up to $2,500 by
    reducing costs, improving technology, and reigning in the power of insurance companies.

    McCain’s approach: “While still having the option of employer-based coverage, every family will receive a direct refundable tax credit – effectively cash – of $2,500 for individuals and $5,000 for families to offset the cost of insurance.”

    Give me the $5,000

    What would a tax credit do for someone who makes $15 an hour and can’t pay their premium? Tax credits are for people that are wealthy…

    I hear what you are saying about give me $5,000 Bud L. Do you think you would still be asking for $5,000 if you couldn’t obtain health coverage due to a history of Cancer? I would think not.

    McCain’s approach is just going to allow people to use the cash tax break to go spend it on TVs and other things. People will not be disiplined enough to put it back into their health insurance costs. Kind of like the stimulis check we received from Bush.
