Health Reform Roundtable Influences National Health Care Debate

We are excited to share news of the widespread media coverage and impact from last week’s release of a statement by Convergence’s Health Reform Roundtable entitled: A Bipartisan Answer to "What Now?" for Health Reform. The distinguished Roundtable members reached agreement on a series of short-term recommendations to Congress needed by September 30th to improve our health care system.
 
The statement has attracted significant media attention. The articles highlight that a surprising group of policy experts from across the political spectrum joined together to make substantive recommendations on a bipartisan path forward on health care. One well-known health care blogger tweeted: “I would not have guessed that these names would be in one place endorsing a shared path forward on health care.”

“Our intention is to model, and to promote, a cooperative legislative approach for members of Congress so that significant, bipartisan progress can be made to improve health care for America's families."
- Ron Pollack, former Founding Executive Director and Chair Emeritus of Families USA.

”We hope this statement can guide policymakers in showing a path forward for bipartisan proposals. We need to provide a safety net for those currently receiving ACA coverage and also offer better options for them and millions of others, especially through greater state flexibility."
- Grace-Marie Turner, President of the Galen Institute.
