Given todays economy thousands of people across New Mexico go unprotected by health care coverage. Through John's experience he knows that by broading the pool of people covered by healthcare, premiums for that coverage would be reduced. John has advocated for the development of a system which creates a larger pool of participants. A system where people who are currently covered keep the coverage they enjoy and the doctors they trust. For the newly covered, a plan with choice of coverage plans which will meet their needs. This system will lower costs because the risk of major claims are spread out across a larger pool. Lower premiums will make it more affordable for people to buy coverage; further increasing the pool. The larger the pool, the lower the premiums and the number of people going without coverage.
