Editorial Calls for Open Debate on Santa Clara Health Plan
A San Jose Mercury News editorial argues that Santa Clara County supervisors should hold a "full, transparent debate" on whether county officials should take over the community-run Santa Clara Family Health Plan. The editorial states that such a move would "threate[n] the collaborative relationships among [health care] providers that are essential for the county's transition to health care reform." It notes, "The county supervisors need to involve the public and the providers in the debate about the plan's future."
