Letter to Senate on Principles for Any ACA Replacement

Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of the non-profit Consumer Reports, writes to urge Congress to focus on preserving the expanded coverage and consumer protections provided under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A move to repeal the ACA without a comprehensive plan in place would threaten consumers and our nation’s health system as a whole. As you consider replacement alternatives, we offer the enclosed set of evidence-based, consumer-centric principles that underscore the critical consumer protections that any reform of the ACA must include.
