Philip Hare

2:54:41 to 2:55:01( Edit History Discussion )

Philip Hare: and what happened was this was a very rich plan that was offered by the state to compete made a perfectly logical decision. 45% of the people who ended up on tin care had private health insurance. but drop their private health insurance to go on the state plan.

Philip Hare

2:55:02 to 2:55:22( Edit History Discussion )

Philip Hare: i went to several of the hospital administrators, the providers there locally and said, how much, what percent of your costs do tin care pay? and it was about 60%. and medicare, at least in our area, it varies in different areas, pays about 90% of the costs and then you have the cost of the uninsure --

Philip Hare

2:55:23 to 2:55:44( Edit History Discussion )

Philip Hare: uninsured which pay somewhere in between which leave a cost shifting to the private payers. what's going to happen, this is so privilege -- predictable because we've already done this experience, we're going to have a plan that's going to be set forwd, a noble plan to cover everyone, if we have time i'll go over principles that i think are important in the health care debate.

Philip Hare

2:55:45 to 2:55:59( Edit History Discussion )

Philip Hare: there will be a plan brought forth to compete with the private sector. that will be subsidized by the taxpayers. that when you go to provide the care, it will pay less than the cost of care. and once again, businesses will make a perfectly logical decision to drop that.
