Heath Insurers Back Governors Plan

April 22nd, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist continues to push his plan to provide insurance to the states nearly 4 million uninsured. Tuesday Crist met with representatives from several insurance companies. He said the companies are prepared to offer policies for as little as 150 bucks a month. Crist was asked why he though people would buy the minimum coverage insurance when they can use hospital emergency rooms and not pay the bill.

They understand if they dont get health coverage from one of these reportable companies, who have a great corporate ethic obviously, then they would do so instead of going to emergency rooms and costing their fellow taxpayers millions of dollars to do it. I believe in their goodness, said Crist.

The Senate unanimously approved the Governors plan. A vote from the House is still pending.
