Lack of consumer awareness of where to get health insurance, what it costs, and what options exist is a critical barrier that prevents many people from obtaining coverage in the individual market (coverage that can include family members). However, a recent study suggests that that three-fourths of the uninsured could find a policy for less than $2,000 per year and that one-third could find a policy for less than $1,000 per year. More widespread dissemination of accurate and transparent information on prices, options, and benefits could play a role in expanding insurance coverage.

Trying to protect consumers against fluctuations in individual private insurance premiums, many states have turned to such regulatory schemes as community rating. Vip Patel and Mark Pauly suggest an alternative: guaranteed renewability of health insurance policies for the next coverage term at class average rates.

Many of us rejoiced to see you recognized at the State of the Union Address for your bipartisan leadership on the education issue.
