Ignagni: Misleading AHIP Study? What Misleading AHIP Study?


Earlier in the piece, Ignagni reflects back on the early days of the reform discussion:

Health plans continue to strongly support reform. In fact, last year we proposed new insurance market rules and consumer protections to achieve universal coverage, remove restrictions on preexisting conditions and end the practice of basing premiums on health status or gender.

And, indeed, AHIP remains committed to the idea that if everybody has to buy insurance, the insurance industry will sell those people plans at...some price.
