Health plans would add to controls on insurers
The government could rein in aggressive marketing practices of health insurance companies, regulate their premiums, and allow workers to drop out of group health plans to seek a better deal on their own under legislation being developed by leading Democratic senators. The Senate proposals are broadly similar to ones being drafted by the chairmen of three House committees. Democrats in both houses would vastly expand federal regulation of insurance to guarantee that all Americans have access to affordable coverage.
