Panel OKs O-Care Exchange 11-1

The Legislature's Health Care Task Force has voted 11-1 to endorse the draft legislation for an Idaho health insurance exchange, and to “send it to a germane committee to let them determine whether it's best for the state or not,” in the words of Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, who made the motion. The sole “no” vote came from House Health & Welfare Chairwoman Janice McGeachin, R-Idaho Falls. “I am not opposed to the idea of setting up an exchange in our state, but I do have some concerns with this legislation the way it's drafted,” McGeachin said/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
