Urgent: Call your Senator TODAY.

Right now Republican Senators are working behind closed doors on their own version of the terrible American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House of Representatives in early May that would rip away health coverage from 23 million Americans. They plan to vote on a Senate bill in two weeks, before they leave for the July 4th recess. Senate leadership does not plan to make the bill public before they vote. Your help is needed NOW to keep Senators from passing a bill to end Medicaid as we know it and restrict health coverage for children and adults with pre-existing conditions. Thirty-seven million children rely on Medicaid, including 40 percent of all children with special health care needs, and more than 40 percent of all births are covered by Medicaid. They could all be harmed by changes the Senate is considering.

Please urge your Senators to reject any structural changes or cuts to Medicaid. Call today and ask your Senators to protect Medicaid for America’s children and families and #KeepKidsCovered.

Tell them there is no way they can design a Medicaid “per capita cap” or block grant that won’t harm low-income children. Children and adults with disabilities, seniors and others would be hurt too. Whole families will be affected.   

Tell your Senators not to move backwards and undermine the critical health care safety net or do away with the ACA’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions, the guarantee of a basic set of essential health benefits – like maternity coverage, mental health coverage, and prescription drugs, or the prohibition of discrimination based on age, gender, or health status.

Please call today and tell your Senators to #Protect Medicaid and #KeepKidsCovered! Thank you if you have called before. We need you to call again and get others to call too!

Call (877) 233-9025 NOW TO SAVE CHILDREN'S HEALTH COVERAGE. Here's what you can say.

ACT NOW TO #ProtectMedicaid and #KeepKidsCovered
