Alliance of Community Health Plans Reacts to
Trump Administration Market Stabilization Rule
Washington, D.C. (February 15, 2017) – The Trump administration issued a rule today designed to address concerns about the stability of the individual health insurance market. Upon review of the new rule, the Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) weighed in with the below statement from President and CEO Ceci Connolly.
“We are very pleased that the administration is heeding the call of consumers and patients, health care plans, providers and other stakeholders to ensure that any potential transition from the Affordable Care Act includes market stabilization levers,” said Ceci Connolly, President and CEO of the Alliance of Community Health Plans. “The new rule begins to address concerns about the stability of the individual market, but does not resolve all of the uncertainty for plans and patients alike. Without adequate funding it will be extremely difficult to provide high-quality, affordable coverage and care to millions of Americans. This is a promising first step.”
The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) is a national leadership organization bringing together innovative health plans and provider groups that are among America’s best at delivering affordable, high-quality coverage and care. ACHP’s member health plans provide coverage and care for more than 19 million Americans across 27 states and the District of Columbia. These organizations focus on improving the health of the communities they serve and are on the leading edge of innovations in affordability and quality of care, including primary care redesign, payment reform, accountable health care delivery and use of information technology.
