Opinion: End may be near for hands-off regulation of healthcare insurance in TX
Like it or not, healthcare reform is coming to Texas, and it's dragging health insurance into the modern age. In this state, lawmakers and businesses embrace the mantra of free markets and low regulation. Regulators don't have the authority to reject increases in health insurance premiums. They didn't even bother with a rate review unless an increase topped 50 percent a year—a threshold that speaks volumes about the role of limited government here.
