Kevin Lembo Says Coronavirus Shows Why It's Time For A Public Option
Play • 41 min

Amid the coronavirus crisis, Comptroller Kevin Lembo has renewed his push for a public health insurance option in Connecticut — an expansion of the plan he runs for state employees. It died last year under pressure from state insurers, but Lembo tells host John Dankosky the need is clear now. He provides a detailed explanation of how it would work, how we'd pay for it, what it might cost, and whether he sees it as a "half-step" toward a Medicare expansion, or Bernie Sanders-style Medicare for All.
