Dirigo Proposing $100k a Year Cap
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.
