Health Coverage at Risk
This week is a national week of action to stand up for the health care rights and protections gained over the past six years. We need YOUR help. Call Georgia Senators Isakson and Purdue at
202-224-3121 to tell them that the Affordable Care Act must be replaced before it is repealed.
What's at stake?
Any repeal of the Affordable Care Act or changes to Medicaid could leave hundreds of thousands of Georgians uninsured, in poor health, and one emergency away from financial ruin. The Affordable Care Act has allowed for numerous protections, including:
- People can no longer be barred from coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
- Young adults can stay on their parent's plan until age 26.
- There are limits on annual out-of-pocket costs and prohibitions on life-time maximums.
We have fought hard for these rights and protections, and we cannot go backwards.
Today, join the fight. Call Senators Isakson and Purdue. Both can be reached at 202-224-3121. Tell them that the ACA MUST be replaced before any repeal action is taken to ensure that consumers are protected from market volatility and to ensure that current protections remain in place. Our health is at stake.
