Health-care reform would be both a blessing and a curse for Kaweah Delta Medical Center if Congress passes a public-insurance option, said Lindsay Mann, the district’s CEO. Mann told a meeting of the Tulare County League of Women Voters on Tuesday that the reform package winding its way through Capitol Hill contains several elements vitally needed in the Valley, but, that a public option health insurance offered by the government might decimate the district’s bottom line.
