Napolitano’s Statement on Trump Administration Ending ACA Subsidies for Low-Income Families

Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced it will end Cost-Sharing Reduction (CSR) payments required under the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

“We are extremely disappointed President Trump has decided to end these vital subsidies, which have enabled millions of low-income families to gain access to life-saving health and mental health services. This reckless action will destabilize the health insurance marketplaces just weeks before open enrollment begins. It is a manufactured crisis that will lead to higher costs, forcing many families to pay more out-of-pocket for expenses and denying millions access to the care they need. I implore my Republican colleagues to join us in revisiting our good faith, bipartisan proposals to continue funding CSR payments and protect care for all Americans.”
