America’s Employers: Health Care Modernization Must Protect Employer-Sponsored Benefits
Washington – The National Coalition on Benefits (NCB) applauds the House Republican Task Force on Health Care Reform proposal’s recognition of the important role employers play in providing quality, affordable health benefits to more than 181 million Americans.
We also urge Congress to carefully review the proposal and evaluate the effect on employees and their families in proposing changes to the tax treatment of employer-sponsored health benefits. This review should ensure that such changes do not impede the ability of employers to offer coverage and for employees to afford this coverage.
NCB looks forward to participating in the forthcoming conversation about how best to achieve our shared goals and objectives for the U.S. health care system: lower costs, improved access, greater transparency and higher quality.
Protect health benefits for more than 181 million Americans.
