NAUH has declared its opposition to the Graham-Cassidy proposal to partially repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

In a message to senators, NAUH stated that its opposition is based on the millions of people the bill would leave uninsured, its lack of federal protection for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions, its failure to repeal massive Affordable Care Act cuts in Medicare and Medicaid payments, and its proposal to reduce the limit the ability of states to levy provider taxes to finance some of their share of their Medicaid costs.

NAUH’s message to senators explained that the association

…welcomes proposals that would enhance access to care in an affordable and responsible manner but we do not believe this legislation offers such potential.
