Protecting Your Healthcare

Congress is currently considering health care legislation that
would take away consumers? rights while padding insurers? profit
margins. If passed into law, Associated Health Plan (AHP) insurers
could legally raise people?s premiums when they get sick, prohibit
appeals when a claim has been denied, and restrict access to basic
preventative care such as mammograms and OB-GYN exams. Insurers
would no longer be required to keep cash on hand to pay their
customers? claims and would be managed, curiously enough, by the
U.S. Department of Labor. According to website dedicated to
protecting consumer access to quality healthcare?the approval of
such legislation would result in ?as many as 100,000 of the sickest
people [losing] their coverage entirely.? With pages devoted to
educating yourself and others about the healthcare crisis, tracking
state and federal legislation, as well as offering a customized
resource kit for contacting your representatives, is just the prescription for
personal empowerment.
