Celebrating 35 years of making Medicare more accessible, affordable, and equitable!

State-Specific Fact Sheets Show How the American Health Care Act Harms Older Adults

With renewed interest by the White House and some members of Congress to bring the American Health Care Act back for a vote, advocates are working to inform people nationwide about the harmful effects of the proposed legislation.

The American Health Care Act would leave many older adults without health coverage, making it harder for them to afford the care they need. The Medicare Rights Center, along with Community Catalyst, AFSCME, and seven other organizations, compiled fact sheets to be used in states across the country. The fact sheets include useful information about what passage of the American Health Care Act would mean for family members, friends, and neighbors in local communities.

Visit to view the fact sheets. Share them with friends and family. You can also print them out and bring them to local town hall meetings hosted by your elected representatives.
