From David Pankau, President and Chief Executive Officer:
“We recognize that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and we have adhered to the law even as its constitutionality has been debated. We continue to move forward in operationalizing our organization so that we can implement its requirements in a timely manner.
However, prior to its passage in March 2010, we have consistently expressed our concern that the law does not address underlying root causes of rising health care cost, which affects our nation’s ability to be competitive in a global economy, stymies the enterprise of small business owners, and restricts the very access to care supported by this legislation.
Our long-term focus remains as it was prior to the creation of national health care reform — working locally to find innovative and collaborative solutions to improve the delivery of quality health care and thus, mitigate rising health care expense.”
