Church Alliance Joins Alliance to Fight The 40

On July 20, 2016, the Church Alliance became a member of the Alliance to Fight the 40, which is a broad-based coalition seeking to repeal the 40% “Cadillac Tax” on the cost of employer-sponsored health coverage that exceeds certain thresholds.

“With all of our members potentially affected by the ‘Cadillac Tax,’ we look forward to working with Fight the 40 to repeal this onerous tax and protect the health benefit plans operated by churches, religious institutions and affiliated organizations,” said Barbara Boigegrain, Chair of the Church Alliance.

The Alliance to Fight the 40 now has 43 member organizations that have joined the group, including public and private sector employer organizations, patient advocates, businesses, unions, and other stakeholders that support employer-sponsored health coverage. The Alliance views this coverage as the backbone of our health care system, as it covers over 175 million Americans across the United States. The Alliance to Fight the 40 seeks to repeal the 40% Cadillac Tax to ensure that employer-sponsored coverage remains an effective and affordable option for working Americans and their families.
