On June 7, 2023, Paragon President Brian Blase was quoted in The Washington Post‘s story “Biden administration proposes limit on skimpy health insurance plans.”

From the article:

The proposal to rein in short-term health plans inflamed the debate that has always surrounded this alternative insurance.

Conservative health policy specialists immediately denounced the Biden administration’s proposal.

“Short-term plans provide quality, affordable coverage for millions of people, reduce the number of the uninsured, help people who get sick and — contrary to the critics — do nothing to undermine” the ACA insurance marketplace, said Brian Blase, an economic policy adviser in the Trump White House who led the work to broaden the availability of such plans.
