STATEMENT OF ACAP CEO MARGARET A. MURRAY ON THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT
WASHINGTON—Margaret A. Murray, CEO of the Association for Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP), made the following statement on the American Health Care Act:
“While ACAP opposed the American Health Care Act, Safety Net Health Plans continue to believe in the importance of health coverage for all Americans at higher quality and lower cost. This moment gives Congress an opportunity to take a different approach to improve the health care system. ACAP has offered constructive ideas on how to improve the ACA to make it work for more Americans and we believe the opportunities for genuine improvement are abundant. ACAP is eager to engage in productive bipartisan discussions around reforming the health care system.
“We hope to join other health care stakeholders in engaging Congress in a productive dialogue on how to make a health care system that works for all Americans.”
ACAP represents 59 nonprofit Safety Net Health Plans in 28 states, which collectively serve more than seventeen million people enrolled in Medicaid, Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and other public health programs. For more information, visit www.communityplans.net.
