Letter From ACE to Senate Party Leaders on the Better Care and Reconciliation Act of 2017 (June 27, 2017)

Letter from the American Council on Education (ACE), signed by 18 additional higher education organizations, to the Senate Majority and Minority leaders expressing concerns about the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 and the negative impact it may have on postsecondary institutions. ACE specifically cites the bill’s proposed cuts to Medicaid, the repeal of the Medicaid expansion, and other, long-term changes to Medicaid as having the potential for harmful effects on the funding available for higher education. The letter also states that the bill will  increase pressure on academic medicine and teaching hospitals, and result in the loss of access to health coverage among students. The letter concludes by urging the Senate to pursue an alternative approach that “fixes current problems without creating new ones.”
