Over 600,000 North Carolinians enrolled in life-saving health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace last year, and another 300,000+ uninsured state residents could still qualify for coverage through Medicaid as called for by the law. Nationwide, more than 20 million people have gained health insurance coverage thanks to the ACA.
President-elect Donald Trump and conservative leaders in Congress have vowed to immediately repeal the ACA when they convene in late January. Even worse, they plan to repeal the law without voting on a replacement plan.
Repealing the law without a plan to provide coverage will jeopardize the health, financial security, and overall well-being of millions of Americans, especially people living with pre-existing health conditions, resulting in nearly 30 million Americans losing coverage. What’s more, a repeal-without-replace vote would send the health care system into chaos.
Tell Congress: NO REPEAL WITHOUT REPLACE! Don’t vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act without coming up with a replacement plan that provides continued access to quality, affordable coverage for North Carolinians.
