SCAI Opposes U.S. House of Representatives Health Reform Bill in Current Form
Date:7/28/2009

ractice insurance

We are concerned that this bill in its current form fails to address both the short- and long-term issues with the health care system. SCAI is strongly supportive of health reform legislation that allows all patients to have access to the most contemporary cardiovascular therapies, where the doctor and patient can work together to determine a most appropriate treatment plan and doctors can deliver the best possible outcomes for patients depending on their individual goals and lifestyles.

SCAI believes comparative effectiveness research is an important component of health care reform but warns against substituting a system that could evolve into one that evaluates treatment options on costs for one that rewards quality of care. To the contrary, SCAI supports a care model that allows doctors to individualize care to optimally meet each patient's unique medical needs.

SCAI supports health care reform and access for all Americans but is concerned that major advances in cardiovascular care will be hindered by the current approach to reform.

SCAI's letter to Congress provides additional detail on the Society's position and is available at http://www.scai.org/pdf/2009July23HealthCareReform.pdf
