In a letter sent to Congressional leaders on Tuesday, September 5, the National Coalition on Health Care called for common-sense, bipartisan solutions to address the looming cuts and deadlines impacting non-group insurance, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), primary care, and Medicare benefits and services.
As part of its mission to bring together stakeholders to achieve an affordable, high-value health system, NCHC advocates for constructive policy change. While some members of NCHC do not, or cannot, take positions either on specific legislation, strategies, or on any policies outside their respective mission areas, all that can, do endorse broad policy positions in support of comprehensive health system change. Here is the policy correspondence sent from the National Coalition on Health Care.
