National Physicians Alliance Statement on Affordable Care Act Replacement

Posted by Drew Hudson March 7, 2017 at 11:06 AM

The National Physicians Alliance opposes the draft Republican House bill revealed last night. We believe the drastic cuts it proposes to Medicaid, coupled with the substantial reductions in subsidies that helped millions afford healthcare would be extremely detrimental to our patients.

Moreover, the bill would, in effect, shift huge costs onto working families, force many to pay more for worse coverage and push millions of American off of health coverage entirely. All the while, the proposed legislation hands millionaires, billionaires and health insurance CEOs a massive new tax break.

The National Physicians Alliance supports efforts to improve healthcare in America. However, we believe the misguided priorities in this bill would move us in the wrong direction.
