Survey Shows Health Care CEOs Overwhelmingly Support Obamacare
A survey from Modern Healthcare shows more than two-thirds of health care executives support keeping Obamacare, while just 2 percent want it gone.By Grant Suneson | May 23, 2016
Health care in the U.S. has become a deeply partisan issue, with Democrats wanting to continue with or expand the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, while Republicans tout their "repeal and replace" plan. But health care leaders have spoken out in favor of the Affordable Care Act.
Modern Healthcare surveyed a "CEO Power Panel" of executives from "hospitals, insurance companies, physician groups, trade associations and other not-for-profit advocacy groups" and found more than two-thirds of CEOs oppose repealing the ACA.
Only 2 percent of that group wanted to remove the ACA, and the rest who weighed in said they’d need more details before deciding one way or the other.
