The Maine Wire is reporting that Maine people covered under individual health insurance plans can expect to see reductions in their insurance premiums of as much as 60% as a result of health insurance law L.D. 1333 – now P.L. 90 – which was passed last year by the Maine legislature and signed by Governor LePage.
Maine People Before Politics actively supported L.D. 1333 / P.L. 90 and our members sent thousands of emails, messages and phone calls to Augusta legislators to urge its passage.
At the time, a coalition of progressive groups and liberal legislators opposed the reform and threatened a citizen initiated referendum to repeal the reforms. MPBP immediately responded to the veto threat by announcing that we would fight to support P.L. 90 if any attempt was made to deny the Maine people lower health insurance rates.
