Advocacy & Health Policy: Government Affairs Committee and Executive Board Set 2017 Legislative Priorities

On Friday, February 3, top legislative advocates met in Washington, DC to discuss ACOG’s legislative priorities for 2017. This semi-annual meeting focused on ensuring any reforms to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) retain landmark women’s health improvements.   

These discussions also focused on critical areas of concern within the ACA, including unaffordable, high deductibles, narrow networks, the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), and the need for meaningful liability reform.  

ACOG’s 2017 Legislative Priorities are available to all members.
