Wendell Potter: Consumer Protections in Industry Crosshairs

http://wendellpotter.com/2013/01/consumer-protections-in-industry-crosshairs/

If you’re a 20- or 30-something and have health coverage, you’re being targeted by an insurance industry campaign to eliminate two important consumer protections in the Affordable Care Act.

If you’re a twenty- or thirty-something and have health coverage, you are being targeted by the insurance industry in its new campaign to eliminate two important consumer protections in the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. ObamaCare.

Take it from me, a guy who used to help plan and execute such campaigns over my 20-year career as an industry executive: Insurers want you to call or write your Member of Congress and demand changes to ObamaCare, changes they say will keep your premiums from skyrocketing.

Here’s what’s going on.

The Affordable Care Act contains several consumer protections, two of which are outlawing “junk insurance” and prohibiting insurance companies from charging excessively high rates to older Americans.
