Statement from Tom Gallagher regarding Blue Ribbon Task Force on Access to Affordable Health Insurance

8/25/2003

CONTACTO: Tami Torres
(850) 413-2842

TALLAHASSEE—"So many hardworking individuals and small businesses are facing double-digit increases in their premiums and are struggling to maintain, and even obtain, health insurance.

I am particularly concerned that small employers will be forced to stop offering health insurance to their employees, leaving workers and their families with little or no options for coverage.

We provided much-needed flexibility by modernizing the standard and basic health insurance plans offered to individuals and small businesses but more work needs to be done.

The Governor should be applauded for commissioning the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Access to Affordable Health Insurance.

I look forward to serving as co-chair with Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings and working to identify and recommend sound public policy solutions to help Floridians secure comprehensive health insurance coverage at a reasonable cost."
