Family Planning

To the Editor: Dear God, When you told us to “be fruitful and multiply”, did you intend for this multiplying to go on, unchecked, forever? Perhaps it’s time for new orders, like “Stop!

Health Insurance, what will happen?

Health Insurance, what will happen?

To the Editor, Republicans plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it. If they succeed, their plan will include buying health insurance across state lines. Since that’s already law, what will change? Let’s consider two factors, premiums and appeals. Federal law currently requires insurers to spend at least 80% to 85% of premium dollars on actual health care or quality improvement and to justify premium increases to state regulators and the Secretary of the U.S. ...
