ACCESS Act would give personal health care options to low-income Americans
WASHINGTON TIMES – Over the past decade, access to convenient, affordable health care has declined. Medical costs have doubled, and access to care has shrunk as health insurance companies, looking for ways to cut costs, have moved to cover fewer services and include fewer of the best doctors and hospitals in their networks. This alarming trend affects all Americans, but it falls hardest on people with low incomes and expensive chronic medical conditions. Happily, relief is in sight for many of these struggling Americans, thanks to a thoughtful new bill introduced by two Florida Republicans in Congress, Reps. Greg Steube and Kat Cammack.
