The health care bill being negotiated in the Senate would allow caps on annual insurance benefits, reversing a previous version of the plan that would have prevented insurance companies from establishing such limits, according to three Democratic aides.

"We were trying to minimize premium impacts," said Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, acknowledging the change.

The trade-off has drawn criticism from the American Cancer Society's Cancer Action Network, a patient advocacy group.

"We were very surprised by this," said Stephen Finan, the group's senior policy director. Finan worries that cancer patients, who often require expensive procedures, could still face major financial losses if annual coverage benefits are capped too low.
