Healthcare Reform Overview
ANH-USA strongly opposed the healthcare bill for a variety of reasons. Our lead concern was that it reduces freedom of choice in healthcare.Now that the bill has passed by the narrowest of margins, we are evaluating legal options to try to overturn it. We are seeking to coordinate our actions in this regard with respected professional medical groups.
We will also continue to monitor the bill closely. The next step will be administrative rulemakings to decide how it will actually be implemented. As vast as the bill was, the rulemaking will no doubt fill many more pages and presents endless opportunity for behind closed door deals or mischievous interpretations. We’ll continue to work to mitigate the damage caused by the healthcare bill and will keep everyone informed. Read More>>

Among them: allowing health savings accounts (HSAs) to survive. HSAs are an essential tool, coupled with reform of health insurance, to help encourage improved cost-consciousness in the use of healthcare services by the public. Indiana’s Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Republican, recently reported that the HSA experiment in his state “is reducing the costs for the state and its employees”. Read More>>

Obama’s Healthcare Bill Unconstitutional?
January 12, 2010
The Wall Street Journal has published several editorials questioning the legality of legislation that would require Americans to purchase healthcare insurance or face penalties. These editorials as well as the lead article in the December 2009 issue of Health Freedom Watch were all penned by noted legal minds. The attorneys general of South Carolina, Florida and a handful of other states have also questioned the constitutionality of the federal healthcare bill, differing versions of which have passed the U.S. House and Senate.Even the Congressional Budget Office has weighed in, stating: “A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States.”  Read More>>
