The American Health Care Act
|July 28, 2017
We did it. Thank you everyone.
You spoke up and Congress listened. They heard your stories. Because of you, they know that mental illness affects 1 in 5 of their constituents. Because of you, they know that stripping Medicaid funding would result in millions of Americans losing access to mental health and substance use services. And because of you, they know that taking a step back from insurance protections would harm people with mental illness.
The powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee released the American Health Care Act on March 6th, a bill that would change health care coverage-from health insurance plans to Medicaid-and put mental health care at risk. The Committee is holding a “markup” to move the bill on Wednesday, March 8th, beginning at 10:30 AM ET. Watch here.
