Health Plan CEO Georganne Chapin believes managed care can evolve with universal coverage! I thought her money quote was pretty amusing.
So then, if Americans are interested in universal coverage, the industry supports it, and the money is already in the system, when will it happen? “In 1996, I said it would come in 10 years,” Chapin says. “We still have four more months.”
Of course she runs a non-profit Medicaid HMO, so her attitudes may not represent those of a typical AHIP member CEO!
