Congress Health Reform Priorities Letter

Select representatives of the Collaborative have sent the above letter in an effort to urge caution as Congress considers repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Access to health care is especially critical for populations experiencing violence and abuse. Repealing the ACA would affect millions of Americans nationwide. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American College of Physicians submitted this letter urging caution during any effort to repeal or replace the ACA.
