Newletter #5

Here is the October issue of the ITUP Federal Reform Newsletter, and the topics covered are:

Health insurance affordability
The potential perils of a Health Insurance Exchange
Part 2 of the consequences of reform failure

Also check out this important brief from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, that estimates an additional 4 million Californians will be covered under the current health reform proposals through Medicaid expansion and premium subsidies. Nearly 20% of Californians are currently uninsured (probably more given the economic climate) and the analysis estimates expansion to 93% of the population. This expansion alone would constitute more individuals than the ENTIRE state population represented by any member of the “Gang of Six.”
