To Our Patients: Potential Changes to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

Changes to federal health care could be coming should the GOP-led Senate repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A current bill being discussed reduces health care spending compared to the current law, erases guarantees around pre-existing conditions and could result in millions of Americans losing their health insurance.

This legislation would have a significant impact on our patient population, and because of this, Denver Health CEO Robin D. Wittenstein (Ed.D, FACHE) has joined other hospital systems in voicing strong opposition to the proposal. Read her co-signed statement addressed to Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell here
