National Health Council Statement on President Trump Eliminating CSR Funding

The following statement is from NHC’s Chief Executive Officer, Marc Boutin:

This is nothing more than a political stunt designed to cripple the insurance markets and impact people’s daily lives, especially people with chronic diseases and disabilities. There is no policy reason for ending the CSR payments. Millions of people will lose their access to health care, because it will astronomically raise costs. In addition, it will increase the federal deficit. No one wins.
