For NRF and some of the coalition's other members, the new initiative, an outgrowth of the Essential Health Benefits Coalition, represents a pragmatic response to the evolving health care landscape.
Ted Lewers, chair of the American Medical Association's board of trustees, says the bill puts patients over profits and "places medical decisions back into the hands of patients and their physicians." What's missing from the bill is a provision to protect employers from new health care lawsuits, counters the Health Benefits Coalition. President Bush's plan for patients' rights, on the other hand, does include employer protection against unnecessary lawsuits.
Dan Danner, chairman of the Health Benefits Coalition, warned that the legislation could result in fewer employers offering health insurance to their employees.
To fight the bill, 31 companies and lobbying groups, including the Business Roundtable, the National Federation for Independent Businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, and the major health insurance companies established the Health Benefits Coalition in January 1998.
Legislating an efficient external review process was also the strategy favored by 56 percent of respondents to a survey sponsored by the Health Benefits Coalition, a broad-based organization representing three million employers providing health care coverages to more than 100 million employee and families.
"Congress needs to take a deep breath and carefully consider the consequences of what it is about to do," cautions Dan Danner, chairman of the Health Benefits Coalition. "The public knows who the real winners and losers will be if Congress allows new health care lawsuits, and they are making it clear that they want a patients' bill of rights, not a lawyer's right to bill."
PARCA has been opposed by the Health Benefits Coalition for Affordable Choice and Quality, a group of 31 health care and business organizations.
The Health Benefits Coalition believes PARCA could lead to an additional 5 to 9 million uninsured.
Health industry groups and large employers have banded together to form the Health Benefits Coalition and plan on spending at least $1 million on an ad campaign convincing consumers - and lawmakers - that imposing federal rules on health insurance companies and health maintenance organizations (HMOs) is a bad idea.
In its new ads, the Health Benefits Coalition claims that such legislation would force premiums up by an average of a whopping 23 percent.
The Health Benefits Coalition, which includes about 20 employer groups, said the bill would "subject employers to costly health-care lawsuits." In its opposition, the coalition said, "A patients' bill of rights shouldn't be a lawyers' right to bill."
