An important call to action from the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation, Cooperative Legislative Action (COLA) Committee.
A Big Step Toward
Free Market Healthcare
Insurance Across State Lines
SUPPORT HB 2233
BIG INSURANCE and BIG MEDICINE
[BIG Campaign Donors]
are Trying to Kill This Bill!
Don’t Let That Happen!
HB 2233 has passed the House. A wonderful first step toward free market healthcare for the Commonwealth. The ability to purchase health insurance across state lines is an important part of every credible free market healthcare plan. With interstate competition, Virginians would be more likely to find a policy that fits their budget, giving more people access to affordable insurance from more insurers who offer a wide array of policy options. The bill protects consumers by including provisions for registration, disclosure, marketing, and financial condition. Virginians could select a plan that satisfies their personal healthcare needs and no longer be limited to plans which must meet the [sometimes ridiculous] requirements of bureaucrats!
HB 2233 – SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: Health benefit plans offered by foreign health insurers. Authorizes any foreign health insurer to sell individual or group health benefit plans in the Commonwealth if it is approved to sell such plans in the foreign health insurer’s domiciliary state. The measure establishes requirements applicable to such benefit plans, including provisions for registration, disclosure, marketing, and financial condition.
HB 2233 is on the Senate Commerce and Labor committee docket for Monday afternoon. Call or email and tell the committee you want free market healthcare and to please pass this bill! Let your Senator know that when this bill comes to the floor, you are asking him to vote YES! (Emails are not guaranteed to be read on a timely basis, therefore we recommend calls. You are able to leave voicemail after hours and on weekends).
