HHS Secretary Azar Meets with Health Insurance Leaders

On Thursday, June 14, Secretary Alex Azar met with representatives from America's Health Insurance Plans and a number of health insurance companies.

Secretary Azar shared the Trump Administration's agenda for a future of health insurance, based on promoting competition and placing the patient at the center. He also discussed ways to help the nearly 28 million Americans left out by the Affordable Care Act, including ways to lower premiums and promote transparency and value throughout the system.

The Secretary also addressed ways to lower the price of drugs for American patients and promote universal access to coverage through private-sector competition. He reiterated that the President and HHS are doing everything they can to ensure that the American people not only receive healthcare coverage but quality care and treatment as well.

Participants included representatives from Aflac U.S., AHIP, AvMed, Healthfirst, Independent Health, InnovaCare, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, L.A. Care Health Plan, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island, Physicians Mutual Insurance Company and Hospitals, Santa Fe HealthCare, Sentara Health Plans, Trustmark Companies, Tufts Health Plan, and WellCare Health Plans.
