PCC Voices Strong Support for the Kids Access to Primary Care Act

The PCC sent a letter to the chairs and ranking members of the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce subcommittee to express its strong support for H.R. 1025, the “Kids’ Access to Primary Care Act of 2021.” The letter was sent as the subcommittee held a hearing today on "Building on the ACA: Legislation to Expand Health Coverage and Lower Costs" during which H.R. 1025 was discussed.

As a multi-stakeholder coalition of 60 organizational members representing clinicians, payers, purchasers, and patients, the PCC wrote that it is committed to strengthening access to comprehensive primary care as the foundation of a high-value health system and thus "The bill calls for a policy fix—that Medicaid pay primary care no less than Medicare—that is straightforward and absolutely essential today more than ever."
