NMA Statement on Affordable Care Act, June 28, 2012
The Nebraska Medical Association remains committed to
ensuring health care for all Nebraskans. As advocates for the health of all
Nebraskans, NMA member physicians will continue to provide quality health care
to all citizens, regardless of insurance status.
We firmly believe that health care for all should include an
emphasis on preventative care, wellness and personal responsibility of the
patient. We support provisions to ensure that health insurance access is
universal and portable and we understand the need for appropriate cost
controls. We also believe in a strong physician/patient relationship in medical
In 2008, the Nebraska Medical Association contributed to a
bill, the Health Care Accessibility and Affordability Act, introduced in the
Nebraska Legislature that was the result of nearly two years of discussions
with health care related stakeholders. We still believe that the
recommendations included in that legislation, including that all Nebraskans be
covered by a health plan, are valid and crucial in health care reform.
