Stop American Health Care Act

If the American Health Care Act passes the Senate it will take away insurance coverage for millions of Americans & end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. The American Health Care Act passed the House with 217 votes & not a single Democrat voted for it. The American Health Care Act puts the health of people living with or at risk for HIV & or hepatitis in jeopardy. Kelsey Louie, CEO of Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) stated, “The U.S. House of Representatives has made a terrible mistake in passing the American Health Care Act, a disastrous bill that puts millions of lives at risk. This empty legislation is no replacement for the Affordable Care Act, a true lifeline that increased access to quality, affordable health care, guaranteed coverage for people with preexisting conditions, such as HIV & covered recommended preventative services, including HIV testing. We see this vote as a direct attack on our clients, many of whom may lose their health insurance & their ability to access PrEP. The potential outcomes are devastating, not just for the LGBT community, but for all Americans. At GMHC we believe that the Public Health of our Nation is driven by the health of our poorest & most vulnerable citizens, we must therefore leave no-one behind without adequate health care. We call on leaders in the U.S. Senate to stop this dangerous bill from moving forward.”
