WASHINGTON, DC: The Council for Affordable Health Coverage (CAHC) – a coalition of employers, insurers, brokers, agents, patient groups, and physician organizations – will hold a Congressional briefing on Tuesday, September 19th at 10 AM entitled "1332 Reasons for Reform: An Explainer on ACA Waivers and What States are Doing to Strengthen Markets for Consumers."
