Insurance company concessions


The Boston Globe reports on concessions by the insurance industry in response to the threat of a public plan:

The health insurance industry offered yesterday to end its practice of charging higher premiums to women if all Americans are required to get coverage, its latest concession as it tries to head off creation of a government insurance plan that would directly compete with private insurers.  Last year, insurers offered to end the practice of denying coverage to sick people, and earlier this year they went still farther by offering to stop charging sick people more.

Are these insurance company offers enough?
