As a dentist, you know first-hand the importance of a competitive health insurance market. However, for 70 years, the health insurance industry has been exempt from Federal antitrust laws - leaving consumers susceptible to unfair price fixing, bid rigging, and market allocation. The time to correct this historical error, restore competition within the health insurance market, and protect consumers from these unfair practices is now.
The House has already voted 416-7 in favor of H.R. 372, the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2017, legislation that repeals the antiquated McCarran-Ferguson Act antitrust exemption granted to the health insurance industry decades ago. Now we need the Senate to do its part. Take action today to urge your Senators to introduce similar legislation in the Senate, so that the health insurance industry can start playing by the same rules as virtually every other industry in the U.S.
Please take action and urge your Senators to introduce similar legislation in the Senate today!
