Say several new proposals go in ‘wrong direction’ by eroding coverage for the most vulnerable
Washington (March 21, 2017) — The American College of Physicians (ACP) today reiterated its strong opposition to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and shared its specific concerns about several of the “manager’s amendments” released last night. In a four-page letter to Congressional leadership, Nitin S. Damle, MD, MS, MACP, ACP’s president, wrote that the bill with the proposed amendments is even less acceptable than it was before it was modified.
ACP’s president said the 148,000-member organization “already expressed to Congress our view that the ACHA violates the principle that Congress must ensure that any possible changes to current law, including to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Medicaid program, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program should first, do no harm to patients and ultimately result in better coverage and access to care for essential medical services. While ACP continues to advocate for improvements to the ACA, the AHCA, especially as modified by several of the proposals released last night, would go in the wrong direction, eroding coverage and essential consumer protections for the most vulnerable patients: those who are older, sicker and poorer.”
In particular, ACP opposes the following changes in Medicaid as proposed in the original bill and the manager’s amendments:
“We are also extraordinarily concerned that a new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate of the amended bill will not be made available, with the necessary time for full consideration of its impact on coverage, out-of-pocket costs, premiums and the deficit, until right before the floor vote in the House of Representatives occurs on Thursday, Dr. Damle said. “This information is crucial to evaluating its impact on patients.”
Dr. Damle concluded the letter by noting, “We sincerely hope that Congress would still be willing to slow down the legislative process, obtain a CBO score in time for thorough consideration before it is voted on, and work with us on ways to improve current law without undermining essential coverage and consumer protections for millions of patients as the AHCA and these potential proposals do.”
The American College of Physicians is the largest medical specialty organization in the United States. ACP members include 148,000 internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists, and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
