INS-044: Insurance Purchasing Pools

Insurance Purchasing Pools: The Wisconsin Medical Society strongly maintains that any health insurance plans based on defined contributions, reduced benefit, or medical savings accounts must be coupled with programs that promote and reward appropriate utilization of preventive care, early intervention and appropriate chronic disease management.

The Society supports efforts to reduce the number of Wisconsin residents without health insurance coverage, and make insurance coverage more secure and its premiums more stable through expanding opportunities for risk pooling.

The Society is committed to health care reform through pluralistic market solutions for improving quality, controlling costs, and expanding access to the right care, at the right time, in the right place. (HOD, 0413)
