From Alliance for a Health Kansas:
Just two months ago you helped stop reckless legislation that would have stripped health coverage from millions of Americans.
But a handful of Senators in Washington, intent on taking health care coverage away from millions and remaking Medicaid, have cooked up a new bill.
The latest ACA repeal bill is called “Cassidy-Graham” and — like each of its predecessors — it eliminates patient protections in the insurance market and slashes federal funding for the Medicaid program.
How will it affect Kansas? Here are a few low-lights:
- It will end our opportunity to expand KanCare, costing our state billions — much more than we would ever gain under any version of repeal and replace.
- It will gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
- It will cut coverage and services for those who rely on Medicaid — primarily seniors, people with disabilities, and children.
- It will result in tens of thousands of Kansans, and millions of Americans, losing their health coverage.
Call Senators Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts. Find the office closest to you, tell them to VOTE NO on Cassidy-Graham, and urge them to get back to work on bi-partisan solutions to improve the ACA.
