Catholic Health Association of the United States

WASHINGTON, DC -- “While we look forward to further reviewing the framework and working on the specific details for the legislation, we welcome the framework’s historic investments in supporting low-income communities and families and its steps toward expanding access to affordable health care by closing the coverage gap for low-income Americans and extending the ACA subsidies for working families across the United States.

We look forward to continuing to work on the proposed legislation which begins to address health equity, invests in maternal health, respects human dignity, gives priority to those most in need and allows all Americans to live healthier lives.”
