WASHINGTON - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA); the Heating, Airconditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI); and the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association (PHCC) joined 245 other organizations as part of the StartOver! Coalition in urging President Obama to scrap the current health care reform proposals passed last year by the House and Senate and begin anew after the Feb. 25, 2010 bi-partisan health care summit. The coalition is requesting the committee craft real reforms that will significantly reduce health insurance costs for employers and employees and increase accessibility to affordable health insurance.

The coalition states, while outlining in the letter seven basic strategies that will immediately reduce health insurance costs and widen availability, “We strongly urge you to avoid the punitive approach taken by the House and Senate-passed bills and instead focus on a fresh approach that places top priority on immediately reducing the cost of care and coverage for all.”
