Insurance rate review protects Montanans
This week, Democrats and Republicans alike will have something to celebrate, albeit for entirely different reasons.
March 23 marks the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the federal health care reform bill lauded by Democrats for banning some of the worst insurance company practices and panned by Republicans for not going far enough to control the cost of health care.
Both sides have a knack for using the law to their own ends. But as Montana's chief insurance regulator, I'm more concerned about using the law as it was intended: to protect consumers.
