Dear Senator Kirk:
I am writing as your constituent asking you to support the application that SimpleHx will be submitting to establish a private, nonprofit, consumer operated and oriented plan (CO-OP) for the State of Illinois under Section 1322 of the Affordable Care Act. The health care system in Illinois is broken and small business owners, their employees and entrepreneurs are suffering as a result. Insurance companies have made their profits on the backs of small business and entrepreneurs for too long. We must be permitted to band together and establish a product to compete in the free market with the large insurance companies that arbitrarily raise insurance premiums.
The establishment of SimpleHx will extend available options and create a competitive environment in which small business owners and individuals can access quality healthcare and affordable coverage not currently available in the individual and small business health insurance markets. I fully support SimpleHxâ€™s loan application and the development of competitive insurance options for small businesses and individuals in Illinois. I ask you, as my Senator, to stand with small business and their employees, and support this cooperative.
