Washington, DC – Doctors for America issued the following statement on the five year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
Statement from Doctors for America Chair Dr. Mona Mangat:
“Today, 16.4 million Americans have new coverage and we have seen the largest reduction in the uninsured in four decades. Millions of people no longer have to worry about being refused coverage or getting charged more for a pre-existing condition.
“By every measurable standard the ACA is working and providing real and powerful change in people’s lives.
“Physicians helped get our Nation’s healthcare system working better for patients. We know there is still much work to be done to increase access and improve care but we are making real progress as a movement toward a better, healthier America.”
