The Federal Health Reform Campaign

In our ongoing work with members of Congress and the Administration, America’s Agenda maintains an unwavering focus on reducing the runaway growth in health costs, while improving quality of care.  Our pragmatic approach to merging sound policy with successful politics leads America’s Agenda to effective policy solutions that can command the broad support of a bipartisan spectrum of Americans.

 

Phase I: Health Insurance Reform

Enactment of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) was a breakthrough against a wall of resistance that has prevented progress in reforming health care for decades.  As a result, tens of millions of Americans who had no health insurance, at all, will gain coverage under this law.  Millions will have better coverage than before.

The America’s Agenda federal health reform campaign had the privilege of making substantial contributions to shaping and winning passage of this historic health insurance reform law.  [See campaign history: 2008-10]

Health insurance reform was an historic first phase of reform.  But it was only the beginning of the comprehensive health reform America needs. 
 

Phase II: Health Care Delivery Reform

Passage of the PPACA set a foundation for the essential next phase of health care reform: transformation of health care delivery into a team-based, efficient, responsive, and high quality system of care.  Without reform of the fragmented, wasteful, and all-too-often unsafe way that health care is delivered to so many Americans, care quality will remain uneven and hyperinflation of medical costs will continue to undermine the financial wellbeing of working families and their employers.

 

The America’s Agenda campaign to win delivery system reform -- the essential phase II of health care reform -- has already begun. In Washington, DC and in the states, America’s Agenda is working shoulder to shoulder with our campaign partners to win effective implementation and continued advancement of health reform.
