American College of Physicians commends introduction of Bipartisan Health CARE Act

new options for obtaining coverage, including having access to the variety and types of health plans offered to federal employees; and

  • an expert advisory commission will recommend essential benefits that participating health plans will be encouraged to offer, as well as ways to expand coverage to those with incomes above 200% of the federal poverty level.

    The Health CARE Act differs in philosophy and substance from past, failed reform efforts in that it relies on choices, competition and financials incentives for state, small employers, insurers and individuals to make affordable coverage available to all Americans. Representatives Kaptur and LaTourette pointed out that it is not a "one size fits all" plan of government mandates and price controls.

    "ACP is confident that this framework can succeed where other health reform proposals have failed," Dr. Dale concluded. "By offering robust incentives and choices to states, employers, and consumers, the Health Care Act has the potential of unifying, instead of dividing, key stakeholders."
