Washington, D.C. – Today CAHC submitted comments in response to the public option RFI put out by Rep. Pallone (D-NJ) and Sen. Murray (D-WA). The request for information sought input on how to design legislation to implement a federally administered public health insurance option.
“CAHC supports universal coverage. We want all Americans to have access to a health policy they can afford and that meets their individual needs. Fortunately, most Americans (92 percent) do obtain health coverage, which they receive through job-based health benefits, government programs, or charitable care. And most Americans like their health coverage. According to a recent CAHC poll, voters support job-based coverage over government-run programs by a 20-point margin.”
