As Congress works to assemble the Biden administration’s American Rescue Plan, the Academy is asking House and Senate leaders to prioritize primary care to respond to and recover from COVID. Among the vital steps called for: Medicaid payment parity, increased investment in the THCGME program, and pre-deductible coverage for primary care visits.
In a new letter to the White House, the Academy and five other frontline physician groups shared comprehensive recommendations for strengthening U.S. health care. Among other actions, it strongly urged that the administration rescind the rule allowing harmful short-term, limited duration insurance plans.
The AAFP and millions of family medicine patients secured a significant win today when the White House moved to open a special ACA enrollment period during the COVID-19 pandemic. President Biden's Jan. 28 executive orders reflect the Academy's advocacy, including detailed policy recommendations to the White House.
