Some are arguing that the bill will ultimately hurt small businesses due to higher insurance premiums to offset the new expense by insurance companies. The measure has now been passed on to the Ohio Senate. It seems unfair that we should dictate what should or should not be covered based on rising premiums. Individuals with cancer cause the premiums to be really high, but it is still a covered treatment.
