40 million Americans do not have health insurance. As a result of the recent healthcare reform, 94 percent of all citizens and legal residents below Medicare age eventually will have access to health insurance, a big jump from the current 83 percent.
Execution will be challenging, and we rely on our network of partners to help guide the nation through a challenging period of transition, continuing efforts to expand coverage to those still uninsured.
the Uninsured Week
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—in partnership with national
and local organizations and thousands of Americans in all 50
states and the District of Columbia—continues to make
the issue of the uninsured a focus of national discussion. Events are held coast to coast so that more Americans can learn
about this critical issue and how it affects every American,
not just those who are uninsured. Visit covertheuninsuredweek.org
to find out how to get involved!
ACHE recommends that all healthcare executives work to support
access to healthcare services for all people. ACHE's official
position on the issue is outlined in the Policy Statement
"Access to Healthcare."
