Our Health Care at Risk

STATEMENT FROM HEALTH ACCESS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ANTHONY WRIGHT ON THE PULLING OF THE AHCA

#Fight4OurHealth

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), millions of Americans have new health coverage options and new help to afford coverage that they can rely on. California led the nation in expanding Medicaid, giving working families subsidies in Covered California in order to afford private insurance, preventing people from being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions, letting young people stay on their parent’s insurance until age 26, and much more. But these options are at risk. President Trump, and the Republican majority in Congress including many Congressional Representatives from California have promised that the ACA should be repealed, without a comprehensive plan to replace it. Without these new options and financial assistance, millions of folks who have benefited from the ACA will face dire health and economic consequences.
