National MS Society Response to Executive Order on Health Care


October 12, 2017

“The Executive Order released this morning is absolutely the wrong approach for people living with MS,” said Bari Talente, Executive Vice President of Advocacy for the National MS Society. “This order erodes protections in health insurance that are critically important to people with chronic and high-cost health care needs. 

This Executive Order both undermines bipartisan efforts to find solutions for our nation’s healthcare system and is another step to damage the Affordable Care Act.

Rolling back critical protections will create more health insurance options that shortsightedly may serve the needs of younger or currently healthy people, but at the expense of others like older or sicker people whose costs will be driven up, and those currently healthy who find themselves facing a healthcare crisis. 

The destabilizing effects of this Executive Order will be devastating for the individual insurance market and potentially the entire health insurance system.”
