Questions raised about proposal for PA's insurance exchange
Advocates for health insurance reform are taking a dim view of a draft proposal for the state's health insurance exchange, saying it could keep the playing field tilted in favor of insurance companies and against consumers. Speaking at a conference call Friday, Antoinette Kraus, project director of Pennsylvania Health Access Network, a coalition of organizations supporting consumer-friendly health reform, said the draft proposal distributed by the state Insurance Department, if enacted, would not change the status quo. "They're using this as an opportunity to line the pockets of big business," said Kraus.
