For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – America’s Health Insurance Plans’ (AHIP) President and CEO Karen Ignagni released the following statement in support of the Jobs and Premium Protection Act introduced today by Senators John Barrasso (WY) and Orrin Hatch (UT) to repeal the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) health insurance tax:
“At a time when policymakers are seeking solutions to make health care more affordable, repealing the $145 billion health insurance tax provides immediate relief to families, small business owners, seniors, and states. This tax substantially increases the cost of coverage at a time when individuals can least afford it. Repealing the health insurance tax is a practical solution that would help millions of Americans.”
