Universal Health Care Coverage

Reaffirmed January 2021, June 2015

Revised August 2009

Originally approved December 1999

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) believes:

  • All Americans must have health care coverage; 
  • Health care coverage will contain a benefits package that provides for timely, unrestricted access to quality emergency care; 
  • Any benefit package should reflect generally accepted standards of medical practice supported by outcome-based evidence, where available.
