Georgia governor signs high-deductible insurance plan bill
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 8, 2008
Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue has signed legislation aimed at making high-deductible health insurance plans more affordable and more widely available. Purdue said the legislation encourages more consumer choice by making quality, affordable healthcare coverage more available. An analysis of the bill said it would give insurance companies $146 million in tax breaks over five years, and proponents say insurance companies would pass the savings on to consumers.
