More Regulations Will Increase The Cost of Health InsuranceIn a February 8th article by Karen Pallarito titled "States Urged to Ensure Health Insurance for All" at Forbes.com, a Harvard School of Public Health report suggests that more regulations will improve the cost and availability of individual and family health insurance.
Nancy C. Turnbill, co-author of the report is quoted in the article as saying "We think regulation can help make the market fairer, and we think that regulation can make coverage more available to people who don't have coverage at the moment."
I would suggest that the cost of health insurance is directly related to the cost of health care. More regulations will simply drive up the cost of health insurance for individual and family health insurance plans. When health care becomes affordable, the free market will almost immediately deliver affordable health insurance.
