Alliance of Community Health Plans Expresses Concern Over Results of CBO Score of American Health Care Act
Washington, D.C. (May 24, 2017) – The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) released a statement today in response to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report analyzing the House American Health Care Act. ACHP President and CEO Ceci Connolly issued the below statement on the findings:
“The results of the independent Congressional Budget Office’s analysis are very concerning. We remain deeply troubled by the prospect of millions of Americans losing their coverage and care.
There’s a lot of work to be done in the weeks and months ahead to ensure that Americans continue to receive the quality of care they deserve at a cost they can afford. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Senate to help make sure that happens.”
