Hagan supports parts of bill
Sen. Kay Hagan says she supported elements of a health care bill unveiled Wednesday.

Sen. Max Baucus on Wednesday rolled out the Senate Finance Committee plan that requires all individuals to purchase health care and prohibits insurance companies from charging more to people with more serious health problems. But it stops short of President Barack Obama's proposal for a government-run insurance plan.

Hagan said in a statement that she was happy to see that the Senate Finance Committee health care bill would reduce the federal deficit by $49 billion over the next 10 years.

Hagan said she also supports insurance market reforms in the bill. Those changes were also included in a bill passed by the another Senate committee on which Hagan serves. The bill would prevent insurance companies from denying coverage because a preexisting condition, removes lifetime caps on coverage and removes co-pays for preventative services.

Hagan said she supports a "backstop" option for Americans who do not have employer sponsored health care. The Finance Committee bill would create a co-op model.
