Insurers tally up Baucus bill provisions
The health-system overhaul proposed by Sen. Max Baucus would create millions of new insurance customers without subjecting health insurers to government-run competition. Insurers have argued that the individual mandate is essential to get healthy people paying premiums and balancing out the costs of adding coverage from an influx of sick people. Deliberations on the bill by the Senate Finance Committee have raised the possibility that such an individual mandate could be significantly weakened.
