ACR addresses concerns with Better Care Reconciliation Act
June 23, 2017

In a statement, Sharad Lakhanpal, MD, MBBS, president of the American College of Rheumatology, addressed the society’s concerns with the discussion draft of the Better Care Reconciliation Act introduced by the Senate.

“The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has always stood for affordable and accessible health care coverage for the 54 million Americans living with rheumatic disease,” Lakhanpal said. “We are concerned the discussion draft of the Better Care Reconciliation Act introduced by Senate leadership falls short of that goal, and we stand ready to work with the Senate leadership to address these concerns.”
