Your access to healthcare is at risk.
The Senate is currently considering another bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sponsored by Sens. Cassidy and Graham. Congress only has until September 30th to act on this measure. We must work together to defeat this bill.
Why should you take action? The Graham-Cassidy legislation would harm our community by:
- Repealing the requirement that most employers offer insurance to their workers
- Allowing states to let insurers charge people higher premiums based on having a pre-existing conditions
- Allowing states to let insurers drop coverage for essential health benefits, like prescription drugs, hospitalization, or access to specialists
- Eliminating all federal funding for the ACA’s insurance marketplaces, including for subsidies and cost-sharing reductions for low-income people
Eliminating federal funding for the Medicaid expansion, by capping federal funding for the traditional Medicaid program that covers children and people with disabilities and establishing a block grant to states with inadequate funding.
We are in the final stretch. Please call, email and tweet your Senators today!
