American Health Care Act Does Not Meet AAFP or CAFP Standards
AAFP let the House of Representatives leadership know on Monday, March 20, 2017 that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) failed on two of the most influential indicators of health: continuous health care coverage and a usual source of care, typically through a continuous relationship with a primary care physician.
The opportunity to advocate for patients and family medicine clearly struck a chord in CAFP members, because record turnout was achieved at the 2017 All Member Advocacy Meeting and Family Medicine Lobby Day in Sacramento last weekend.
