Acting Secretary Hargan Welcomes Opportunity to Expand Affordable Healthcare Choices

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Health and Human Services Acting Secretary Eric Hargan issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order to expand affordable healthcare choices:

“Obamacare’s Washington-knows-best approach has left too many Americans without access to affordable health coverage. Instead of lower costs and more choices, millions of Americans continue to suffer under a system that features surging costs and dwindling choices,” said HHS Acting Secretary Eric Hargan. “Fortunately, President Trump is taking action on patient-centered solutions that would enable Americans to purchase health coverage that works best for them instead of being left with only unaffordable options that have been dictated by Washington. The status quo is unsustainable; it’s time to put Americans back in charge of their healthcare decisions.”
