Agency Argues Reform's State Benefits

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Proposed health care reforms could have significant benefits for families, seniors and businesses in many states, a new report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services asserts.

HHS has issued state-by-state reports with details on how it believes reform will benefit each state.

For example, the report says, under health insurance reform:

–4.5 million California seniors would receive free preventive services.

–565,000 Florida seniors would have their brand-name drug costs in the Medicare Part D “doughnut hole” halved.

Without reform, the number of uninsured people will grow by more than 30% by 2019 in 29 states and by at least 10% in every state, HHS argues.
