Today, a non-partisan group of 18 patient, provider, and consumer groups renewed calls for Congress to act on the Bipartisan Health Care Stabilization Act of 2017 in light of yesterday’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report:

“The CBO report on the Senate HELP Committee’s bipartisan health care package confirms that this bill is a strong, first step in the right direction for Americans who rely on affordable, adequate health insurance coverage to stay healthy.

The Alexander-Murray package would benefit patients and families by lowering premiums and strengthening the individual health insurance market. For our communities, this is a welcome shift away from the proposals introduced earlier this year that would have jeopardized access to health insurance coverage, as well as life-saving therapies and care for the millions of Americans who have pre-existing health conditions.

We call on members of the House and Senate to join their colleagues on both sides of the aisle in support of the Bipartisan Health Care Stabilization Act. Millions of American families are counting on you.”
