Illinois health bill would cap costs for the uninsured

Chicago Tribune, May 2, 2008
Illinois lawmakers are planning to introduce legislation that would make the state the first in the country to cap the amount that the uninsured pay for hospital care in any 12-month period. The bill would also limit how much hospitals could charge people without insurance and reduce medical bills by up to 50 percent or more. The bill is supported by the Illinois Hospital Association, although it opposed a similar effort last year.
