Reps. Grijalva, Gallego, and O’Halleran Call on Gov. Ducey to Take Action to Prevent Premium Increases and Protect Health Coverage for Arizonans
WASHINGTON, DC—Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, Rep. Ruben Gallego, and Rep. Tom O’Halleran sent a letter to Governor Doug Ducey urging him to reject attacks on the Affordable Care Act and outlined solutions that will prevent premiums from rising for Arizona’s working families. According to a study by the Urban Institute, partisan attacks on the ACA could increase 2018 premiums in Arizona by an estimated 20.6 percent and leave numerous individuals uninsured. The letter read in part:
“For the sake of our constituents, we urge you utilize the authorities available within state and local agencies to help mitigate the impact of harmful actions and proposals that undermine our communities’ ability to live healthy, productive lives. Protecting the health of Arizonans should be above politics. We stand ready to work with you and your administration to help make the options listed above a reality while we continue to pursue bipartisan long-term solutions to improving our health care system for all families.”
