Introduced by Rep. Andy Dillon (D) on September 10, 2009
To create a single government employee health insurance system that would determine the types of coverage for all employees and retirees of the state and local governments, schools, colleges and universities. A state health benefits program board would create specific coverage options, and each school district, local government, college and university would select one of these for its employees, and pay the state to provide it. A government or school employer could offer a different employee health plan if it could prove that it can provide comparable benefits at a lower price. Official Text and Analysis.
