(AP) The Montana University System will soon be paying current and former employees who are owed medical insurance claims. The university system previously denied the claims, but must now pay as part of a class action settlement, The Missoulian reported ( http://bit.ly/2ptLsdX ) Sunday. The university system used to have an exclusion in its health insurance policy stating it would not pay benefits if other insurance was available, attorney for the plaintiffs Hillary Carls said. About 45,000 letters have been sent to people who might have had a claim between October 2001 and December 2016, McRae said. The university system funds its own health insurance plan and keeps a “multi-million (dollar) reserve,” McRae said. It has adequate funds to pay all claims that are approved as a result of the case, he said. Current and former employees are submitting claims anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to $120,000, Carls said. “We’re talking about a population of employees who had been injured in some way, and we’re just trying to get them the compensation they’re due under Montana law,” Carls said. A hearing on the medical insurance claims is scheduled for Dec.

A compelling book by T.R. Reid, The Healing of America, outlines what works in all other wealthy industrialized countries countries guaranteeing health care for all citizens and at costs of about half of what we spend. Its a simple readand leaves you thinking how straightforward it would be to reduce administrative costs to about 2 percent per year instead of the 20 percent we spend now. A New York Times bestseller, the book lays out the combinations of public and private systems that operate in Europe, Japan, Taiwan and Canada any one of which would represent an improvement over what we will have if we revert back to any semblance of the pre-2010 system. We dont need to reinvent the wheel. We already offer single-payer/universal coverage health plans to our veterans, active-duty military personnel, those over 65 and those whose incomes are below the poverty level at an administrative cost of just 2 to 5 percent. Adopting something similar with a proven track record of success from another industrialized country shouldnt have to be such a stretch. Anyone locked in the ideology of avoiding socialized medicine should recognize that those offering national health care in a variety of forms all embrace capitalism as fervently as we do. I subscribe to the notion that we should encourage personal responsibility as in: Get a job, save money, buy car insurance because its the law, etc. But at some point, theres a thin line between encouraging personal responsibility and what I call the politics of selfishness. Those just obsessed with cutting their tax bills fail to acknowledge that some of the most responsible people imaginable, who have done the right thing throughout their lives, can have bad luck when it comes to the nexus of illness and the lack of medical insurance coverage.
