AMA Letter to Congress on AHCA

Earlier today, the AMA sent a letter to Congress in opposition to the American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628), which is scheduled for a vote on the House floor tomorrow.

Modifications made to the bill following consideration by the committees of jurisdiction did not address the AMA’s chief concerns, which were expressed to Congress in previous correspondence. More specifically, the bill that will be considered on the House floor will not preserve recent gains in health insurance coverage, nor will it make meaningful and affordable coverage more available to low and moderate income Americans. Changes proposed to the Medicaid program will reduce federal support and erode the health care safety net, and Medicaid enrollees will be denied access to covered services provided by certain qualified health care providers.

Prospects for a successful floor vote in the House are uncertain. If the bill does pass, the Senate intends to consider it next week and will very likely make changes due to both parliamentary issues and policy concerns.

RCMA will keep your apprised of developments.
