From the office of Congressman Andy Harris:
DR. HARRIS: THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT WILL EMPOWER PATIENTS
WASHINGTON, DC: On March 7, Dr. Andy Harris released the following statement on the newly released draft of the American Health Care Act:
“Obamacare’s many failures are spiraling out of control. For too long, Americans have seen their premiums skyrocketing, their deductibles soaring, and their choices dwindling. The Obamacare path is unsustainable and dangerous for our country.
Fixing this mess will not be easy, but this week the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was introduced to replace the failing Obamacare system. AHCA will drive down costs while providing every American with access to high quality, affordable health insurance.
AHCA does away with Washington bureaucratic mandates, choosing instead to empower patients and their physicians in health care decision-making. AHCA restores control of Medicaid decisions to the states, helping us to reduce fraud and abuse while promoting flexibility.
AHCA accomplishes all of this while maintaining protections for patients with pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance. We are working to make the transition from Obamacare to the AHCA as smooth as possible.”
