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.
