Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) introduced new legislation in mid-September to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Graham-Cassidy proposal is more far-reaching than other recent Senate proposals and could be devastating to people living with PH and other chronic health conditions. Specifically, the new proposal would:
- Allow insurance companies to charge individuals with pre-existing health conditions more
- Allow states to more easily opt out of requiring quality health insurance options and comprehensive benefits
- Dramatically reduce the federal commitment to Medicaid expansion
The proposal has quickly gained support and could be voted on next week. Contact your senators today and ask them to oppose the Graham-Cassidy repeal and replace proposal. Act now!
