Tell Representatives Vote No on AHCA

We need your immediate action to defeat the American Health Care Act (AHCA)! The House of Representatives will be voting today—as early as 2:00PM—to repeal key parts of the Affordable Care Act and to decimate the Medicaid program. 

The AHCA is Bad Policy

  • The AHCA is a bad bill that keeps getting worse.
  • At a time when Americans are concerned about health care being too expensive, it raises premiums 20 percent, charges people over 50 five times more than younger enrollees and increases out-of-pocket costs and deductibles, while leaving 24 million more people uninsured. 
  • The changes made yesterday to Essential Health Benefits makes coverage worse for almost everybody.  
    • It effectively eliminates annual out-of-pocket caps and reinstates annual and lifetime coverage limits, hurting those with the most serious illnesses, like breast cancer.
    • And it guts protections for preexisting conditions, because most insurance policies won't include coverage for essential health benefits, the result would be soaring costs for those who need them.
  • Medicaid cuts and changes to health insurance rules will dramatically limit access to mental health and opioid use disorder treatment, even with a last-minute infusion of laughably inadequate funding in the bill.

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED:  Call the Representatives listed below and tell them: Vote NO on AHCA! Women and men with and at risk of breast cancer lives depend on it!
