The Health Insurance Association of America advocates joint efforts by federal and state governments and the private sector to achieve the goal of universal access to health care. It recommends several changes in the small employer market to provide greater predictability and protection to those insured, including establishment of private, not-for-profit reinsurance organizations authorized by the states. State risk pools for uninsurable individuals who are not part of an employer group are also proposed. The federal government role would include expanding Medicaid eligibility and exempting all insured plans from state mandated benefits. HIAA's proposal also stresses the continued growth and use of managed care programs.
