Health Reform update

The Latest on Health Care Reform from http://cwa-union.org

The House of Representatives is on track to introduce a comprehensive health care reform bill this week and to hold committee markup and votes beginning next week.

Three House committees — Education and Labor, Energy and Commerce, and Ways and Means – have been working together to produce one bill.

CWA has four key priorities for real reform: participation by all employers, coverage for pre-Medicare eligible retirees, a public plan option and no taxes on health care benefits for working and middle class families. 

On the Senate side, the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee is putting the final touches on its package that will include a public plan option, employer mandates and other provisions. Still in the works is the Senate Finance Committee version.
