CU Urges Congress to Oppose the Small Business Health Fairness Act


CU Urges Congress to Oppose the Small Business Health Fairness Act
Consumers Union is committed to helping ensure that consumers receive affordable, high-quality healthcare and join members of Congress in seeking workable solutions.
Consumers Union urges the House to oppose H.R. 660, “The Small Business Health Fairness Act of 2003.” We are committed to helping ensure that consumers receive affordable, high-quality healthcare, and join members of Congress in seeking workable solutions for reducing the number of uninsured. However, association health plans (AHPs) are not the solution. AHPs would harm the healthcare system by creating skimpy coverage for some, driving up premiums for the sick, and undermining state efforts to spread healthcare costs fairly across the population.
