Dirigo Proposing $100k a Year Cap

Dirigo Proposing $100k a Year Cap

August 21, 2009 Posted by Maine Heritage Policy Center - 1 Comment

The Dirigo Health Board is discussing changes to Maine’s government plan – DirigoChoice.  One of the considerations is a $100,000 a year limit on benefits. 

This is a great lesson learned for proponents of government-run health care.  Government health care is great…as long as you don’t get sick.

DirigoChoice enrollment is down to 9,472.  A far cry from the 128,000+ that were promised when Dirigo passed in 2003, as noted most recently in today’s WSJ opinion piece.
