ACP: Fight to stop AHCA not over

March 24, 2017

With the postponement of the House of Representatives vote on the American Health Care Act, the ACP urged Congress to reject the bill and start over in order to develop a meaningful legislation that improves the current law, rather than eliminate coverage and benefits for millions of Americans.

“While we are encouraged that the [American Health Care Act (AHCA)] vote was postponed because of lack of support, ACP is also very much aware that the bill could still be brought back for a vote, potentially with changes to gain votes that would make it even more detrimental to patient care by further eroding coverage and consumer protections,” Nitin S. Damle, MD, MS, MACP, president of ACP, said in a statement. “For this reason, ACP will continue to use every available resource to urge Congress to bury the AHCA, once and for all.”
