For Immediate Release: July 9, 2009

Statement on Implementation of Oklahoma High Risk Pool
Co-Authored 2008 Law Which Took Effect July 1

“Raising the Lifetime Maximum from $500,000 to $1 million will prevent Oklahomans from losing critical insurance coverage. I am proud to have sponsored this legislation as it affords some of our most vulnerable citizens the critical care they need. This is an excellent example of a public-private enterprise finding solutions for a problem. The High Risk Pool prevents the necessity of heavy handed government insurance regulation and instead offers real answers to Oklahomans in need of help.”
