Partnership for America’s Health Care Future is an ad hoc alliance of American hospital, health insurance, and pharmaceutical lobbyists committed to preventing legislation that would lead to single payer healthcare, expanding Medicare, or creating Medicare for All in particular.[1][2] It purports to support expansion of the Affordable Care Act.[3]

Founded in June 2018 by the Federation of American Hospitals, America’s Health Insurance Plans, and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the Washington, DC-based[4] Partnership has grown to include the American Hospital Association and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.[3]

In November 2018, Partnership planning documents were leaked to the media.[5]
