The U.S. House of Representatives today passed H.R. 4626, the Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act, legislation that will eliminate the antitrust exemption for health insurance companies.  Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson co-sponsored the legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 406-19

“Repealing the antitrust exemption that health insurance companies have enjoyed for decades is a crucial step in providing Americans with affordable, accessible health care,” Congresswoman Johnson said.  “Americans deserve to have more choice and greater control over their health care coverage, and they deserve to benefit from the market forces that drive down prices, particularly now, when health care costs are rising much faster than inflation.  I am extremely pleased that this common-sense legislation passed the House with bipartisan support, and I am proud to have supported it.”

Congresswoman Johnson recently posted a piece about the Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act on the Huffington Post, which is available here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rep-eddie-bernice-johnson/eliminate-the-antitrust-e_b_474769.html
