APA VOICES DISAPPOINTMENT UPON PASSAGE OF AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT

The American Psychological Association and its affiliated APA Practice Organization expressed disappointment that the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act and urged the Senate to reject the bill, which is projected to take health insurance away from millions of Americans and undermine the vitally important Medicaid program.

“The American Health Care Act passed by the House today by a vote of 217 to 213 is significantly worse than the version considered last month,” said APA President Antonio E. Puente, Ph.D.  “The bill now opens the door to health plans once again charging exorbitant premiums to the tens of millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.  It is estimated that about 45 million Americans experience a behavioral health condition over the course of a year. The $8 billion payment to states for setting up a high-risk pool would cover only about 76,000 people – this is barely a drop in the bucket.”
