U.S. health-care bill passes
Washington, March 21, 2010 – The American College of Physicians ACP today applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for passing health care reform legislation. “This is a historic time,” said ACP President Joseph W. Stubbs, MD, FACP. “ACP has long advocated for these and other reforms, and we are pleased that they have passed the House today.“This historic measure advances long-standing ACP policies to provide all Americans with access to affordable health insurance coverage,” Dr. Stubbs said. “It fills gaps in our current system by providing families and small businesses with competitive and portable private sector options to buy affordable coverage, providing subsidies when they need help, and ending egregious insurance company practices that deny patients with pre-existing conditions access to affordable coverage.”Without reform, Dr. Stubbs said, tens of millions of Americans stood to lose access to affordable health care and out-of-control spending would have triggered an unprecedented fiscal and budgetary crisis.
