n4a Letter to House Energy & Commerce Committee on PPHF

On September 29, n4a sent a letter to leadership of and Members on the House Energy and Commerce Committee urging Congress to reject elimination of the Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF) during budget reconciliation debates. 

The Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF), created as part of the Affordable Care Act, is a critical investment in promoting wellness and preventing the diseases that are a main driver of health care costs. Supporting evidence-based prevention and wellness programs for older adults is imperative, given the nation’s aging population and growing rates of chronic disease. Congress has proposed eliminating funding for PPHF as part of broader budget reconciliation efforts focused on repealing ACA.
