    America’s Frontline Physicians Oppose Efforts to Eliminate the Individual Mandate

    Our organizations, which represent more than 560,000 physicians and medical students, strongly support policies that ensure every American has access to affordable health coverage. We are concerned that a proposed provision in the Senate tax reform legislation to repeal the individual mandate is inconsistent with our goals.

    America's Frontline Physicians Urge Immediate Reversal of Decision to Discontinue CSR Payments

    This decision is not consistent with the administration’s pledge to provide individuals and families with more options to secure affordable health care coverage. Elimination of CSR payments makes that goal harder, if not impossible, to achieve. Our organizations call on the United States Senate and House of Representatives to take immediate action to restore these payments. A failure to address this matter will result in dramatic, if not catastrophic, increases in premiums across the country – resulting in millions of people either losing their health care coverage due to either insurer departures from the market or their inability to afford coverage.

    Group of 6 Statement on President Trump’s Health Care Executive Order

    Our organizations, which represent more than 560,000 physicians and medical students nationwide, look forward to further analyzing the Executive Order issued today by President Donald J. Trump.  It is important that policies proposed be thoroughly evaluated to determine their impact on individuals and our health care system more broadly.  We look forward to submitting more formal comments through the rulemaking process as the Administration seeks to establish the regulatory framework to implement the goals of today’s Executive Order.  However, our initial review raises serious concerns about its impact on our patients.

    Nation’s Ob-Gyns Denounce Trump Administration’s Attack on Contraception

    “Reducing access to contraceptive coverage threatens to reverse the tremendous progress our nation has made in recent years in lowering the unintended pregnancy rate. Instead of fulfilling its mission ‘to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans,’ HHS leaders under the current administration are focused on turning back the clock on women’s health."

As the nation’s leading group of physicians providing health care for women, ACOG is dedicated to evidence-based treatment and compassionate care."
