Dose of Reality: ACHIA's a bad deal unless you're desperate

In the March 2010 Dose of Reality, Davis takes on ACHIA and the sudden spate of cheery ads and announcements publicizing Alaska's Comprehensive Health Insurance Association:
These ads stress the idea that every Alaskan already has the ability to buy health insurance. Why do you suppose that is? Could it be that the ads are a propaganda ploy trying to promote the idea that we don’t really need health care reform just because it promises that everyone will be able to get insurance despite pre-existing conditions? Also, we might ask, why are so few Alaskans enrolled in the ACHIA program?
Davis tackled the ACHIA program in an earlier article, too, in February 2009, describing how the program works.
