NORD Critical of Republicans' Health Care Act

RDR Staff

Earlier this week, House Republicans released the first draft of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – their replacement for the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).
The bill, in its current state, aims to repeal many provisions in Obamacare through budgetary reconciliation, and replace them with alternative provisions.
In a press release, NORD noted that there are many provisions in the AHCA that should keep rare disease patients protected while other provisions are a concern.
NORD concluded that “We do not support the American Health Care Act at this time, but with continued dialogue and collaboration, we hope to be able to support legislation that improves the lives and wellbeing of rare disease patients.”
