AMA, FAH, others part of coalition working to derail 'Medicare for All' 

A group of hospital, payer and pharmaceutical lobbyists want to temper the Democratic Party messaging around "Medicare for All," according to The Intercept

The Intercept obtained internal strategy documents of the Partnership for America's Health Care Future, a coalition with sponsors that include America's Health Insurance Plans, the American Medical Association, the Federation of American Hospitals, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. 

The documents indicate the group worked to influence Democrats during the midterms to stay more moderate on healthcare and focus on bolstering the ACA, rather than promoting single-payer plans. The documents show the coalition has further plans to temper messaging and stunt the growing popularity of Medicare for All so that it doesn’t become part of the Democratic Party platform in 2020.
