APAPO ACTION ALERT ON FEDERAL HEALTHCARE BILL
In an Action Alert sent to members on March 16, APA noted in a letter to Congressional Leaders, “As we have previously communicated, we believe that any health care reform legislation to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) considered by Congress should increase the number of Americans with coverage for mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment. Unfortunately, as the recent analysis by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) concludes, the American Health Care Act would significantly decrease Americans’ access to these services, and by 2026 would take coverage away from an estimated 24 million people who would have otherwise been covered under current law, nearly doubling the proportion of Americans without health insurance.” Click here for the Action Alert and take action.
