American Lung Association National President and CEO Responds to Release of Final Short-Term Limited Duration Rule

Statement of American Lung Association National President and CEO Harold P. Wimmer, in response to the release of the final Short-Term Limited Duration Rule:

“The short-term plans now allowed by the Department of Health and Human Services will not offer sufficient healthcare coverage for those living with a lung disease such as asthma, lung cancer or COPD. Lung disease patients need access to treatment to be able to breathe. This is a reckless course of action that will negatively impact the health of patients around the country.”
