Opinion Piece Stumps for Basic Health Plan in California
In a San Jose Mercury News opinion piece, John Ramey -- president of the Local Health Plans of California -- argues that "it's vital that California" pass legislation (SB 703) to create a Basic Health Plan. He concludes, "The Basic Health Plan is California's opportunity to ensure health care reform works. It must be put in place now, so that come 2014, all Californians are covered and all Californians who are currently insured see their costs go down."
