Senate Republicans revealed a discussion draft of their bill to repeal and replace the ACA Thursday. Kenneth L. Davis, MD, president and CEO of the Mount Sinai Health System reacted to the Better Care Reconciliation expressing opposition to the bill. "We are still reviewing the details but the current Senate legislation could have a devastating effect on hospitals and patients across the country. Millions of people will likely become uninsured and hospitals will be pushed to the brink, especially those who treat Medicaid patients. If the new bill becomes law, for the first time in more than 50 years the United States would become a less compassionate society. I urge Congress to reject these drastic cuts."
