TAKE ACTION: Save Federal Protections for People with Pre-existing Conditions like Breast Cancer

Posted By on May 31st, 2017 at 9:32 am | 0 comments.

The U.S. House of Representatives in Washington recently voted to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and to replace it with a new law. The bill that passed the House of Representatives, called the American Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare, removes federal health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions like breast cancer. Instead, individual states would be able to create high-risk pools which did not work in the past and will not work now. That means, if you have a pre-existing condition like breast cancer, you may be denied health insurance or charged more for your care.

We cannot let that happen.

The bill is now in the U.S. Senate. We have reached out to both U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey to find out where they stand on federal health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions like breast cancer. Sen. Casey has committed to saving federal protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Sen. Toomey has not taken a public position yet, but his office says he “will ensure affordable coverage for those with chronic conditions.”

Will you help us save federal health insurance protections for people with breast cancer?
Here’s what we need you to do:
