OLYMPIA, Wash. – Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler and 14 health insurers sent a joint letter today to Washington’s Congressional delegation advising them of the consequences of repealing the Affordable Care Act without a concrete, comprehensive replacement plan.
The 14 insurers are members of the Association of Washington Healthcare Plans. Together, they provide coverage to over 5 million consumers.
“We’ve taken this unified and unprecedented action today because of our state’s experience with health reform,” said Kreidler. “We know— firsthand —the harm these decisions can have on the health insurance market and our consumers.”
