LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Indianapolis, Ind. —U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after the Administration announced it will end important Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR) payments that help lower consumers’ deductibles and co-pays. Non-partisan experts estimated that cutting off these payments would cause premiums to rise 15-20 percent. The announcement on CSR payments comes on the heels of the Administration’s executive order yesterday that also could harm Hoosiers and further destabilize the individual marketplace.
Donnelly said, “The Administration’s decision to end critical cost-sharing payments is part of an ongoing effort to undermine access to affordable health care. We need to fix the health care system, not make it worse. We should all agree that we want more accessible and affordable health care, and the way to achieve that is by working together. This is about the health and financial well-being of families in Indiana and across the country, and I remain committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to improve health care.”
