Statement from DMAA: The Care Continuum Alliance
November 2, 2009

Organizations representing thousands of health care providers and businesses and other purchasers joined DMAA: The Care Continuum Alliance today in seeking a delay in regulations that could severely restrict the availability and effectiveness of wellness and disease management programs. The groups sent letters to Senate leaders and administration officials calling for a moratorium on regulations to carry out the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and creation of an interagency panel to assess how the new rules might harm workplace health promotion efforts.

"The groups that join us today reflect the significant and adverse impact the GINA regulations will have on wellness and prevention efforts," DMAA President and CEO Tracey Moorhead said. "Employers, health plans, providers and other stakeholders are deeply concerned about the effect GINA will have on workplace health promotion."

The groups' letter to the Senate is available at:
