In a letter to Congress co-led by Families USA and Community Catalyst, over 215 organizations representing consumers advocates, labor, equity organizations, providers, plans, patients, public health organizations, child advocates, disability rights groups, aging organizations, and more issued strong support for the American Rescue Plan, specifically the health coverage provisions. At a moment when diverse stakeholders are aligned on potential coverage gains and improvements under consideration by both chambers of Congress, advocates are aligned in pushing for a COVID-19 relief package that ensure all of America’s families have the opportunity to live a healthy life and receive high-quality health care regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or geographic location. The health coverage provisions in the House package are critical to beating the COVID-19 package, promoting racial justice, and ensuring economic recovery, and advocates stand unified in pushing for these bipartisan measures to pass Congress and swiftly receive President Biden’s signature.
