Life-Saving Health Care Could Be Stripped Away from Us
Efforts to strip away essential life-saving health care access provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are underway right now in Washington.
As we speak, a handful of senators are literally meeting behind closed doors to draft in secret a bill to repeal the ACA. Millions of vulnerable Americans, including LGBTQ people and people living with HIV, are at risk of losing access to health care.
Passage of the so-called American Health Care Act would mean a loss of coverage for 23 million Americans, including up to 1 million LGBTQ Americans, and put at risk nearly 40 percent of Americans with HIV currently receiving care through Medicaid.
In a matter of days, senators could vote on this disgraceful piece of legislation.
Contact your senators today and urge them to protect Medicaid and health care access by voting no on the American Health Care Act.
GLAD’s fight for justice for all includes ensuring the health and safety of LGBTQ people and people living with HIV. We will continue to do our job. Help us make sure our senators do theirs.
