Martha D Young 1 week, 3 days ago on Bill study could even out health insurance costs across Colorado

I like what you said, Chris. I have another suggestion: federal regulation of insurance companies just like the Feds regulate companies that do other kinds of business. I cannot imagine a non-insurance company getting away with soaking its customers and, in turn, providing poor reimbursement to its suppliers. Does anyone remember the anti-trust laws?

Teresa - a "bill study" cannot "even out" health insurance costs.
