Graham-Cassidy proposal: What you need to know

September 21, 2017

The latest Republican legislation attempting to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act drafted by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy, MD, (R-La.), and thus deemed the Graham-Cassidy proposal, has gained growing disapproval from several health care organizations, including the AMA and the American College of Physicians.

Within the past week, the AMA and the American College of Physicians (ACP) sent separate letters to the Senators conveying their strong opposition to the bill, citing as main concerns the loss of health care insurance for millions of Americans and its failure to “first, do no harm” to patients. The associations also urged the Senate to reject the legislation and reiterated recommendations to ensure affordable, quality coverage that is accessible to all patients across the country.
