The American Nurses Association
(ANA) released the following statement on the failure of the so-called “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act.
“The only way our country can truly reform our healthcare system is by working together,” said ANA Executive Director, Debbie Hatmaker, PhD, RN, FAAN. “ANA urges Senators to craft bipartisan legislation that protects Americans from being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions, protects essential health benefits, and improves quality, affordability and access. ANA remains committed to working with Congress to provide coverage to all Americans, and will continue to fight against any legislation that puts politics ahead of patients.”
