PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 13   -- The following is a statement from Mark Ganz, president and chief executive officer of Regence BlueCross BlueShield, regarding the Senate Finance Committee vote today on the America’s Healthy Future Act:

“Regence continues to be cautiously optimistic that an economically sustainable health care reform package will be adopted this year.  Today’s vote is an important step toward ensuring long-term health care security and stability for all Americans.  However, there is still more work to be done.  

“Our company's deep commitment to improving the health care system is unwavering.  In the coming weeks, we will continue our ongoing advocacy for these key reform elements: all Americans must have affordable coverage and access to quality care; insurers must drop pre-existing barriers to coverage, medical care must become more efficient; and the entire system must be simpler and more transparent.  

“Regence will work tirelessly to achieve the critical pillars of reform that will ensure broader economic sustainability for our members and the nation as a whole.”
