NCHC supports improving the affordability of the health care system for all stakeholders, including consumers, payers, and businesses. Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased coverage, there are still gaps. The current health infrastructure is not equipped to address coverage gaps, under-insurance, and increasing hospital prices. However, the Coalition has created a comprehensive set of policy recommendations for Medicare, Medicaid, and the commercial market that prioritize improving the market-based health care system. The COVID-19 pandemic underscores the importance of taking bold and bipartisan action to improve affordability and access.
