New campaign commercials are keeping the spotlight on health insurance issues.[@@]
The Council for Affordable Health Insurance, Alexandria, Va., is running a radio campaign in Maine that blames the state’s laws governing individual and family health insurance for sky-high coverage rates.
The CAHI ad points out that typical family coverage might cost $2,200 per month in Maine but only $250 per month in Connecticut. The CAHI ad talks about a bill proposed by Rep. John Shadegg, R-Ariz., that would let residents of one state cross state lines to buy health coverage in another state.
“We wanted Mainers to know that help is on its way ? from Congress, not their state leaders,” Dr. Merrill Matthews, CAHI’s director, says in a statement about the radio ad.
