The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF) submits this written testimony for the record for the March 6, 2019 hearing before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Health Subcommittee titled “Strengthening Our Health Care System: Legislation to Lower Consumer Costs and Expand Access.” APIAHF endorses the three pieces of legislation being reviewed in this hearing: H.R. 1425, The “State Health Care Premium Reduction Act,” H.R. 1425, the “State Health Care Premium Reduction Act,” and H.R.1386, the “Expand Navigators’ Resources for Outreach, Learning, And Longevity (ENROLL) Act.” All three of these bills will help to improve the health care system, by allowing states to innovate with reinsurance programs, renewing the federal government’s commitment to support states in establishing their own health insurance exchanges, and funding and improving the Navigator program under the Affordable Care Act. This testimony focuses on the ENROLL Act, for which we deeply appreciate Representatives Castor, Blunt Rochester, Wilson and Crist for introducing.
