As the U.S. Senate works on its replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act, your voice is needed to ensure any legislation moving forward contains critical protections for Americans living with rare and chronic illnesses which the patient community fought so hard to create.
The Senate ACA replacement legislation would allow states to potentially opt out of the Essential Health Benefits mandated under the ACA, which include coverage for potentially life-saving care, such as hospital visits, prescription drugs, and emergency services. This would endanger patients by limiting access to safe and effective care and increasing costs for vital health coverage that individuals living with chronic conditions need.
The current Senate health plan also allows insurers to set arbitrary caps on coverage – a devastating prospect for rare and chronic disease patients who, through no fault of their own, are battling expensive conditions.
Urge your senators to pursue health care legislation that ensures life-saving patient protections now.
