Americans desire a healthcare system that delivers world-class care and financial security. This system should be accessible and affordable, and it should have a positive impact on the nation’s economy. Successful health care reform will maximize consumer choice, restrain skyrocketing medical care costs and increase access to health care for more Americans. NAHU has consistently supported positive reform that achieves the objectives of affordability and accessibility. We have also consistently urged Congress and the President to build upon our existing system’s strengths to achieve workable health reform solutions in a bipartisan manner, An American Solution—NAHU~ Vision for Affordable and Responsible Health Care Reform is NAHU’s comprehensive approach to meeting this challenge. Our detailed federal government relations priorities for 2012 and this summary of how we are taking care of our current legislative objectives provide more information.
