CAHI Releases 'Americans' Health Care Declaration of Rights'

Alexandria,VA -- The health care reform debate has focused on expanding health insurance coverage to all Americans. But guaranteeing access to coverage doesn't mean it will be good coverage, or that patients will be able to see the doctor they want or receive the care they need in a timely manner.

We believe that health care reform should embrace the rights and benefits that Americans want and have come to expect from their health care system. And that these rights, enumerated in the "Americans' Health Care Declaration of Rights," [See Video Here] must not be taken away or damaged by any government-sponsored health care scheme.

The Council for Affordable Health Insurance is proud to partner with other like-minded Americans -- organizations, groups and individuals -- who believe, as we do, that any proposed legislation should be judged in light of the rights expressed in the Declaration. Let your voice join with others so that your elected representatives know: It's your health, it's your choice. And if your elected representatives vote to destroy those rights... it's your vote.
