Public Option/Medicare or Medicaid Buy-in Position Paper

With the latest calls for a public option, NAHU strongly opposes all legislative proposals that would create a public option or a buy-in to an existing public plan to compete with private insurers. NAHU strongly believes that the ACA does need to be modified in a number of ways, but that a public option or an option to buy in to an existing public program would not enhance consumer choice, but would instead reduce the viability of private coverage. Instead, we support solutions that build on the strength and stability of the employer-provided and ACA health coverage that millions of Americans rely on today.
