Valdosta - A new Georgia law could mean better health care and insurance plans for you.
State Senator Tim Golden introduced the Consumer Driver Health Plan Act and discussed its benefits with Lowndes County health care providers and business leaders Wednesday. The law allows employers and employees to put up to 10 thousand dollars a year into a health care account.
Golden says it's the first step in solving the country's health care problems. "One in five Georgians are uninsured, and we're hoping this will put Georgia on the cutting edge of eliminating this problem," said Golden. "Nobody else is doing this in the nation."
The Consumer Driven Health Plan Act went into effect July 1.
