Just got an interesting update. At least one health insurer has developed, and a medical plan for “guest workers,” as one of the current crop of immigration bills calls them.
I’m not really sure what the market will be; after all, these folks are getting “free” health care now, so why would they see a need for insurance?
Still, it’s reassuring to see that our industry hasn’t lost its flair for innovation. And, frankly, I don’t see a downside to this idea: if “guest workers” buy into the American dream to the extent that they want to buy health insurance, that’s “a good thing.”
