Message to Tom Price: Drop the Repeal IdeaFebruary 20, 2017 |
by Andy Slavitt
Congratulations on your confirmation and the honor of serving the American people as head of the Health and Human Services Department. The decision over what to do about the Affordable Care Act is coming at you fast. Millions of Americans are waiting to understand if their health coverage and protections will continue, while insurance companies need to know whether the Obama-era health care law’s major market reforms, like requiring coverage of people with pre-existing conditions and subsidizing health insurance for moderate-income families, will continue.
