Stop Zombie Trumpcare!

April 27, 2017: The House Freedom Caucus has officially endorsed a revised Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, delivering a fresh burst of momentum to the GOP’s efforts to revive its stalled health care effort. Read more here.

This new version of the GOP repeal bill the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would be even worse for people with HIV. It would allow states to opt of providing essential health benefits and charge people with pre-existing conditions like HIV higher premiums. The initial bill would have left 24 million uninsured. This bill will leave coverage out of reach for even more Americans. Please tell your Congressional representative to OPPOSE the Amended AHCA Repeal Bill.

Now is not the time to be silent. Speak up and demand that your elected officials oppose the American Health Care Act. Speak up–your voice matters!

Republicans and Democrats need to hear from you! Call your Representative in the House of Representatives TODAY, at (866) 246-9371.  This number is toll-free and will connect you with your Representative. Here is what you can say:

Hello my name is _______ and I live in [city, state & zip]. I am a person [living with HIV /concerned about HIV]. I am calling to demand that you vote against the American Health Care Act. The American Health Care Act will hurt people living with and vulnerable to HIV by making it harder and more expensive to get the care they need. All Americans deserve better. I urge you to support people living with and vulnerable to HIV and oppose the American Health Care Act.

Target list is below.

If you are authorized to sign your organization onto a letter opposing the amended AHCA, please sign on here.

This Friday, the House could very well pass a bill that many analysts characterize as worse than the original version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA, which would have dismantled many ACA protections for people with viral hepatitis). In addition to stripping Medicaid funding for the most vulnerable communities, the new bill would allow states to:

  • Let insurers charge people higher premiums based on pre-existing conditions
  • Eliminate the law’s essential health benefits requirements that guarantee coverage for things like mental health care, prescription drugs, and maternity care

The defeat of this bill now depends on the willingness of moderate House Republicans to vote NO on the legislation. We urge you to contact your representative now and tell them to vote NO on the Amended AHCA.
