Sabotage, plain and simple

The President has taken a major step toward dismantling the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with an Executive Order aimed at collapsing the private health insurance market by drawing Americans toward skimpier health insurance plans. It’s sabotage, plain and simple.

Doctors and healthcare professionals know that everyone will become sick at some point in their lives and that these junk plans will not provide patients with the coverage they need when they need it most. In fact, these plans could reject people with pre-existing conditions, have lifetime/annual limits and no limit on out of pocket costs.

It is no coincidence the timing of this order occurred just before the start of Open Enrollment. The Administration is attempting to cause confusion for Americans and discourage them from signing up for coverage on the exchange. But quality, affordable coverage is still available and we must spread the word.

Join us for an emergency call to discuss administrative efforts to sabotage the ACA and the upcoming Open Enrollment periodLearn how you can help fight back to ensure Americans get the coverage they need.
