And now for something completely different: Imagine you’re a health insurance broker on a plane to somewhere. It’s not until the captain announces you’re approaching your destination that that you realize the person sitting next to you is a key player in the health care reform debate. Maybe she’s a lawmaker, an analyst at the Congressional Budget Office, a deputy in the White House, or a prominent policy wonk. Numerous questions occur to you, but you only have time to ask just three.
You realize a lot of people are talking about the details of health care reform (What legislation is likely to pass? When will its provisions take effect?). What very few discuss pertains to distribution (Do you see value in the services of brokers in today’s system? What role should brokers in a reformed health care system? That kind of thing). This is your chance to ask. What would your three questions be?
Between now and September 26th (Saturday for those keeping track) please list your three questions by adding a comment to this post. Starting on Sunday and at least through Monday (September 27th and September 28th) I’ll post a survey allowing visitors to this blog to vote on the questions submitted. Then we’ll see if we can’t provide answers tor some of the more popular questions.
Every reader of this blog is invited to participate in this exercise regardless of whether or not you’re a broker. If you can, please try to keep the questions focused on distribution (I know, with everything going on, that could be tough).
The plane is descending. You’ve got time for three questions. Ask away.
