Possible Changes to Dirigo Health 

(WABI) – Representative Jill Conover of Oakland has proposed legislation that would give the Dirigo Health Agency the option to self-administer.

Currently, Dirigo Choice must buy a fully insured policy through a private insurance agency. In 2005 alone, Anthem made over three million dollars in profits from the Maine plan.

This bill would enable Dirigo to take those profits and reinvest them into the program, allowing more people to purchase the plan.
