Secure Health Care for All

The 2010 federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) put America on the path to quality and affordable health care for all.  Over the years the law has faced a multitude of legal and political challenges from opponents seeking to overturn its new health insurance regulations, consumer protections, and coverage expansions.  The NPA is actively working to ensure that these protections and coverage expansions guaranteed through the ACA are built upon, not dismantled.

Upcoming Events

August

Congress is on recess for the rest of August. Senators and House Representatives are
in-district and need to hear from physicians before they return to DC in September when
bi-partisan hearings on health care legislation will begin in the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee.
