Bipartisan Legislation to Reduce Health Care Costs
At American Muslim Health Professionals, we believe in access to quality and affordable healthcare coverage as a basic human right. Patients should not have the added burden of surprise medical bills and high out-of-network deductibles when they visit the emergency room. This is why we support the bipartisan “Lower Health Care Costs Act of 2019” to reduce the prices of prescription drugs and emergency room visits and improve transparency within the healthcare field. As a public health organization, we want individuals to take advantage of their healthcare benefits and preventative care without worrying about surprise medical bills. AMHP has a national listserv of over 2,000 members – many of whom are healthcare providers and have a stake in a more transparent healthcare system.
