March 22, 2010 11:30 ET Praises New Health Reform Legislation for Insuring More Americans Praises the Health Reform Bill as a Positive Step Toward Ensuring All Americans Have Access to Affordable Health Insurance and Quality Health Care

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) -  As a result of last night's landmark health care and health insurance reform legislation passed by the United States House of Representatives, 32 million uninsured Americans will be able to obtain health coverage.

Michael Mahoney, the Director of Consumer Markets at, praised the bill as positive progress toward the goal of making sure every citizen is insured.

"In the health industry, the role played by the government shouldn't interfere with a consumer's choice, but can and should help them gain affordable access to health care services," said Mahoney. "This bill is definitely a step in the right direction to make sure all Americans have the health insurance coverage they need."

While the health reform bill stands to put some 16 million people on Medicaid, a publicly funded health care program, the new law will require that most Americans obtain their own coverage through an employer or in the individual health insurance market. 

Because of the soon-to-be effective federal health insurance mandate, said Mahoney, "many consumers will utilize the Internet to compare and purchase a health plan.", the nation's leading online health insurance portal, is a type of "insurance exchange" lauded by many in Washington, including President Obama.
