The statement below is attributable to Wisconsin Medical Society President Noel Deep, MD, FACP

“Prior to today’s vote in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Wisconsin Medical Society raised concerns that the American Health Care Act would result in decreased coverage and affordability, leading to millions of uninsured.

“Those concerns remain, and as this bill moves to the Senate, we are committed to working with Senators Baldwin and Johnson to improve the legislation to ensure timely access to high-quality, affordable care that meets all patients’ needs.”
