FAH Leader Calls Debt Ceiling Deal “Important Step Forward,” Urges Passage to Protect Access to Care

FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement after the House Rules Committee voted to advance the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023:

“President Biden and Speaker McCarthy took an important step forward by crafting this bipartisan agreement to raise the nation’s debt ceiling.

“It will help ensure those Americans on Medicare and Medicaid maintain access to the essential physician and hospital services they need and deserve.

“We urge Congress to move quickly on passage so seniors and our most vulnerable patients are protected and don’t face any interruption in care.”
