Analyst says health care overhaul would harm some Alaskans

The health care reform bills before Congress that would extend insurance coverage to tens of thousands of Alaskans who are uninsured wouldn't necessarily be good for all Alaskans, according to an economic consultant who is tracking the health bills for the University of Alaska. Mark Foster, a contract consultant for the Institute for Social and Economic Research, believes Alaskans who use Medicare, the federal insurance for senior citizens, will be harmed if the House bill prevails.
