More than 40 million uninsured Americans will have access to affordable health insurance coverage under a comprehensive new set of targeted policy reforms developed by America’s Health Insurance Plans. Our plan would:

  • Improve SCHIP to cover all uninsured children from low-income families
  • Create a new tax-free health care account that can be used to pay for any type of health care coverage
  • Expand Medicaid to cover all uninsured adults whose incomes are below the federal poverty level
  • Establish a health tax credit for working families
  • Create a new incentive grant program to assist states in expanding access

Our plan can work because it:

  • Provides a roadmap for reform
  • Builds on the strengths of the current system
  • Shares responsibility among private and public sectors
  • Expands access in phases
  • Resonates with voters across the political spectrum

America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) is the national association representing nearly 1,300 member companies providing health insurance coverage to more than 200 million Americans. Our member companies offer medical expense insurance, long-term care insurance, disability income insurance, dental insurance, supplemental insurance, stop-loss insurance and reinsurance to consumers, employers, and public purchasers. Our goal is to provide a unified voice for the health care financing industry, to expand access to high-quality, cost-effective health care to all Americans, and to ensure Americans’ financial security through robust insurance markets, product flexibility and innovation, and an abundance of consumer choice.
