Donnelly Urges White House To Commit To Healthcare Market Stability

Senator Donnelly said in a letter to the Trump Administration that the President's lack of support of cost sharing reduction payments are causing insurers to leave ACA.

WASHINGTON, D.C -- The healthcare debate wages on into it's second week as Republicans and Democrats can't come to an agreement on healthcare reform. 

Your senior senator Joe Donnelly (D) was back in Indiana this past weekend and penned an open letter to Medicare and Medicaid Services Director Seema Verma and the Trump administration. 

"It is our job to protect American families from unnecessary increases in the cost of health care, particularly in our control" Donnelly wrote to the White House. That is why I am very concerned by recent comments and actions made by the Administration demonstrating a willingness and desire to undermine the health care system, even at the expense of the health and economic security of millions of Americans."

Donnelly is urges the Administration in the letter to make a public commitment to continuing cost sharing reduction payments which are laid out in the Affordable Care Act, which keep deductibles and co-pays low for consumers. 

He says the President's lack of a commitment to CSR's is one of the main reasons why many insurance comapnies have pulled off the Obamacare exchange in Indiana.
