Pressure is mounting for the U.S. House of Representatives to vote on the amended America Health Care Act (AHCA). The AHCA decimates the Medicaid program to the tune of $880 billion over a ten year period, shifting cost burdens to states and jeopardizing a critical lifeline for people with disabilities.
The latest proposal would enable states to seek waivers that would significantly impact coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, including people with disabilities. The new amendment would allow states to charge higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions, endangering care for millions of Americans.
Now is the time to stand up for those who need it most. Please join today’s National Call-in Day! Contact your Member of Congress (202-224-3121) and urge them to oppose proposed cuts to Medicaid and vote NO on the AHCA!
