Supports Senate Bill 693 that limits board appointments

To the Editor,I am grateful to Gov. Rick Snyder and the Senate Health Policy Committee for providing the leadership necessary to get the Michigan Health Marketplace underway. There is much to support in the current legislation, such as the provision that prohibits employees of insurance carriers, health benefit plans and health care providers from serving on the governing board. I support Senate Bill 693 and encourage the Committee and the members of both chambers to look for even further measures to strengthen this legislation in order to assure that it provides full protection to health care consumers. I think it is important to move the process forward in a timely manner so as to maintain Michigan’s compliance with federal law and thereby avoid unnecessary involvement from the federal government. I encourage both Representative Jenkins and Senator Caswell to support this legislation and to exert their full influence in expediting the process. Dale Cochrane Tecumseh
