    Governor Appoints Georgia Academy Leader to Commission on Mandated Health Insurance Benefits

    Gov. Nathan Deal, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and House Speaker David Ralston announced in mid-March the appointments to the Special Advisory Commission on Mandated Health Insurance Benefits. Dr. Harry Strothers, immediate past GAFP Board Chair, is the Georgia Academy’s representative.

    Under state law, signed by the governor, the commission is charged with evaluating the social and financial impact of current and proposed mandated benefits. Members will assess the impact of mandated benefits on employers and insurers, the impact of treatment, potential costs or cost savings and other appropriate information and from there they will advise the governor and the General Assembly.
