With the House passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) last week, Congress is one step closer to making radical changes to Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and Medicare that will put millions of Americans at risk of losing affordable health care. The AHCA ends Medicaid as we know it, eliminates insurance protections, raises premiums on older Americans, damages employer-based coverage, and undermines Medicare.
Now, Senate Republicans are weighing what’s next for the AHCA, which makes it all the more important to make your voice heard. Here are five things everyone can do to join the fight to protect our care:
Medicaid helps millions of Americans access affordable health care, including 11 million people with Medicare and over 30 million children. The ACA helps millions of Americans access affordable health care, including people who have lost their jobs or are trying to start a business. Medicare helps millions of Americans access affordable health care, including retirees and people with disabilities.
Together, these three programs help every single American. But we can only protect Medicare, Medicaid, and the ACA if lawmakers in Congress truly understand what these programs mean to the people who elected them.
Whether you do one or all of these five things, it’s important to take action to protect our care. Make your voice heard! And don’t worry, Medicare Rights will be right beside you all along the way.
