As the Administration and Congress address health reform, the Nursing Coalition stands ready to support the following ideals that are at the forefront of the national dialogue: 

  • Ensure patients have access to quality health care with affordable coverage options, regardless of their pre-existing conditions;
  • Uphold the principles of essential health benefits, including providing patients with access to ambulatory care, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental health services and addiction treatment, prescription drugs, rehabilitative services and devices, laboratory services, preventive services, wellness services and chronic disease management, and pediatric services; and
  • Uphold Medicaid expansion.
