AMA For Public-Private Insurance Venture

AMA in favour of an insurance scheme that includes both private and public system, venturing together

James Rohack, new President of The American Medical Association, has decided to introduce a government-funded health insurance scheme – reported Kaiser Health News.

He stated that the American Medical Association is in favour of an insurance scheme that includes both private system and a public system, venturing together.

According to Mr. Rohack, the health insurance plan is a joint venture one benefiting the congress members and many federal employees.

The AMA President said: “The (Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan) available to Congress members and other federal employees could be expanded as a public option. That would avoid having to create a new program from scratch.”
