Lindeen Statement on Insurance Reform


      Lindeen today released the following statement regarding health insurance reform, stating it is the most important political reform we can deliver to the people of Montana:
      
      “In order to reform the insurance industry as efficiently and affordably as possible, everyone—the young, the old, the healthy, and the sick, -- has to be included. The current proposal would prohibit the insurance industry from denying coverage to Montanans like Katie Gibson simply because of her medical history.
      
      “The scene is set for lawmakers on all sides to support this solution. I am confident that we can accomplish insurance reform that will benefit all Montanans. There is far too much at stake to let this opportunity slip away.”
