The following is a statement from the Society for Human Resource Management in response to the U.S. House of Representative's passage of H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act:
"The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is disappointed that the U.S. House of Representatives has approved health care legislation in a form that falls short of controlling long-term costs. While the House-passed bill does contain many positive reforms, it creates new burdens or impediments that will have an adverse affect on health care costs, and it weakens efforts to promote wellness and preventative care.
“SHRM is committed to achieving health care reforms that strengthen the employer-based system, advance wellness and health promotion programs, protect the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), provide affordable coverage to all Americans, and increase access to information about quality and costs so that consumers can make better informed decisions.
“HR professionals know the current system is unsustainable. That is why SHRM and its 250,000 members are urging members of the U.S. Senate to pass legislation that lowers costs, improves access, and ensures a national, uniform framework for health care benefits."
