AMA urges Senate to reject Graham-Cassidy proposal

September 20, 2017

The AMA recently sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Charles Schumer strongly opposing the Graham-Cassidy legislation, emphasizing that the bill would result in the loss of health insurance coverage for millions of Americans while destabilizing health insurance markets.

“Similar to proposals that were considered in the Senate in July, we believe the Graham-Cassidy Amendment would result in millions of Americans losing their health insurance coverage, destabilize health insurance markets, and decrease access to affordable coverage and care,” James L. Madara, MD, CEO and executive vice president of AMA, wrote in the letter.
