ACP offers recommendations to Congress for health care reform

May 23, 2017

Today, the ACP released a new policy agenda containing several recommendations for Congress to improve American health care.

The paper, titled A Prescription for a Forward-Looking Agenda to Improve American Health Care, emphasizes ACP’s view that it is time to cease the “unfruitful” debate over repealing and replacing the ACA. Instead ACP urges Congress and the administration to create and implement a “forward-thinking agenda” for health care reform in collaboration with ACP and other clinician and patient advocacy organizations.
