LOS ANGELES —UNAC/UHCP President Denise Duncan, RN, issued the following statement on the Graham-Cassidy Affordable Care Act repeal legislation:

"The Graham-Cassidy bill is yet another incredibly shortsighted health care bill. It removes coverage rather than addressing the underlying problems, such as access and affordability. That is why virtually all health care and patient advocacy organizations will oppose the latest draft of this bill. Patients and those who care for them deserve better."
