MSSNY Statement on President Donald Trump's Decision to End Health Care Cost-Sharing Subsidies

Statement attributed to: Charles Rothberg, MD, President, Medical Society of the State of New York

"The short-sighted decision to end the insurance subsidies authorized through the ACA will have a significant negative impact on the hundreds of thousands of New York patients who benefit from this subsidized coverage.

It could result in many of these patients being unable to afford needed health insurance coverage.  We urge Congress to act quickly to pass legislation to restore these subsidies, as well as extending funding for the Child Health Insurance Program."
