Insurance Industry Sends Further Recommendations To Baucus

The health insurance industry's largest professional association sent a letter to Sen. Max Baucus with "recommendations for strengthening" his health care reform bill, reports Talking Points Memo.

Karen Ignagni, president of America's Health Insurance Plans, who signed the 13-page letter, wrote that the industry does not back Baucus's plan to raise money by imposing taxes and fees on health care companies.

Ignagni also said that the bill's proposed system of co-operatives would "only result in a slower march to a government-run plan."
