BOSTON, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to recent health care actions announced by the Trump administration, Andrew Dreyfus, President & CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, released the following statement:
"We are deeply concerned that the Administration's recent actions will create further instability in the insurance market and threaten our shared goal of providing affordable and quality coverage and care to everyone, regardless of economic status, age, or condition.
At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts, our highest priority is ensuring that quality health coverage is accessible and affordable for our members, employer customers, and the community. The measures proposed by the Administration would likely create an unfair and unstable market, making coverage out of reach for those who need it most and undermining the meaningful progress that our state and nation have made in extending health insurance coverage to our fellow citizens.
We encourage policy makers to work in a bipartisan spirit to improve the Affordable Care Act to create a health care system that is high quality, affordable, and sustainable."
