Are you OK with one person taking control of what happens to your medical bills?

I don’t think I’ve ever politicized a blog post.  This could be a first.   So you’ve gotta know how important it must be.

Proposition 45 will be on the ballot in November.  Prop 45 is a flawed, deceptive measure that will increase costs for consumers and (maybe) harm the quality of our health care.

A special interest group (of course!) is sponsoring Proposition 45, an initiative on the November 2014 ballot that gives ONE POLITICIAN (the Insurance Commissioner) new power over your health care – including your premiums, co-pays, deductibles and even the treatment options your health insurance covers.

This is bad.  This is very, very bad.

We all want to control health care costs – that’s why California has a new independent commission with the authority to negotiate rates with health plans and reject them if they’re too expensive. We should give this commission a chance to work, NOT give more power to a single politician who can take campaign contributions from special interests.

There are many reasons why Prop 45 is NOT a good idea.   And they all might cost YOU a lot of money.

1.            Prop 45 gives one politician just too much power.

2.            Prop 45 creates a more costly bureaucracy.

3.            Prop 45 is sponsored by special interest (lawyers, lawyers, lawyers!) who could make a LOT of money under this measure.

Be wary of what’s on your ballots, kiddies.  The Insurance Mom doesn’t want you and the whole state of California to get caught in a terrible mess caused by Prop 45.

Ask yourself this:   Do you trust one politician to dictate what will happen to your health and finances?

With one elected official in charge, you won’t have any input – nor will doctors or hospitals – on the best decisions for your …
