FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act: “Republicans have set their sights on repealing and replacing the ACA so today’s vote is disappointing, but not surprising. As passed by the House of Representatives, the AHCA fails to protect the health coverage and access to care for so many Americans. It also makes it more difficult for hospitals to deliver the care we all rely on. With these concerns top of mind, FAH could not support the House legislation today.
