McCollum Health Care Council

September 8th, 2009 by flanews

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Bill McCollum is opposing the health care reform bill.

McCollum formed a 13 member Health Care Advisory Council to research impact of the legislation on Florida. McCollum said the current plan would bankrupt the state.

This state cannot afford the additional Medicaid cost that might be rolled into that bill when we already have the cost that we have and the burdens that we have today. That would be a mandate on the state by the federal government, maybe the biggest ever in history, said McCollum.

McCollum says the way to lower the cost of insurance is to crack down on Medicaid fraud and medical malpractice lawsuits.
