There is really too much media coverage regarding health care reform for the average person to begin to comprehend the magnitude and scope of the proposed legislation from both the House and Senate. Therefore it is vitally important for the concerned reader to receive creditable information from experts experienced in the financing, delivering, and providing of medical care. Within this blog I will attempt to provide the reader with a series of creditable third party sources.
One such source is from a panel discussion sponsored by the Heritage Foundation. Primarily the panel experts attempted to alert their audience that the proposed and feared public option found in the House’s bill (H.R. 3200) on health care reform is alive and well within the Senate’s bill (H.R. 3590) but disguised as an insurance exchange administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The panel outlines the concerns all should have regarding such a proposed scheme.
