Healthy Mae
 n.— «Bush campaign officials said they had no comment on the Frist proposal. That plan envisions a federally chartered but privately run reinsurance organization, analogous to the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae mortgage companies that were established to assume the risk of lending so that bankers can give homeowners more affordable mortgages. Dr. Frist has referred to it as a “national publicly chartered, privately run “Healthy Mae.”» —“Momentum Builds for U.S. Role in Paying Highest Health Costs” by Milt Freudenheim, Robert Pear New York Times Oct. 23, 2004.
