Georgia governor backs tax break on some health plans
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, January 31, 2008
Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue is backing legislation that will give state residents a tax break for the premiums they pay on high-deductible health insurance plans. The proposal also would eliminate a premium tax paid on such policies and give small businesses tax credits for enrolling employees in high-deductible plans. And it would allow consumers who buy such plans to get rebates from insurers for "behavior modifications," such as quitting smoking or lowering their blood pressure.
