Fighting to keep America great in Washington, AMAC continues to stay up-to-date on important legislation passing through the chambers of Congress. Today, AMAC is proud to announce its support for H.R. 3350, the “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013.” Introduced by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), this bill ensures that Americans satisfied with their current health care plans will be able to keep their plans when the individual mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), known more commonly as “ObamaCare,” goes into effect on January 1, 2014. Over the years, President Obama assured the American people that if they liked their health care plan, then they would be able to keep it under PPACA. Sadly, many Americans have been notified that their coverage has been cancelled now that implementation of ObamaCare is underway. H.R. 3350 allows insurers to continue offering these plans on the individual markets and prohibits the government from penalizing individuals who choose to keep their plans. With a letter of support delivered to Rep. Upton’s office earlier this week, AMAC is pleased to give its stamp of approval to the Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013 – a critical step in restoring the authority to make personal decisions about health care to individuals and families.
