Chicago Aon Supports Ill. Governor’s Health Care Proposal

March 13, 2007

Chicago-based Aon Corp. recently released a statement saying that it supports Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s efforts to craft a health care plan that would provide affordable coverage options to the uninsured and underinsured, and address catastrophic illness and injury. Aon’s own Health Care Trend survey warns about the impact of double-digit health care rate increases.

The Aon statement suggested that discussions about the details of a plan should focus on the importance of acquiring quality health care information, committing to preventive care, and reducing lifestyle-related risk factors. The funding and program structure for any such plan, of course, must not be unduly burdensome to individuals or businesses and must create the proper incentives for individuals to use health resources wisely.

Opponents of the the Governor’s plan say there is a lack of funding for the proposal and worry the plan would increase the state’s deficit.

Aon Corp. provides risk management services, insurance and reinsurance brokerage, human capital and management consulting, and specialty insurance underwriting.
