Health care legislation passed in Washington this week certainly has its critics. But it's not all bad says Gundersen Lutheran CEO Jeff Thompson. He likes some of the insurance reforms included in the legislation, including the one that doesn't allow insurance companies to deny you coverage for pre-existing conditions. He says the reforms are a good start, though, he says, plenty more needs to be done.
Thompson doesn't think accessibility to health care will be compromised by the bill in Washington. But he's also not predicting that Americans will spend any fewer health care dollars.
