The President-Elect and Congressional leadership have vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but have not yet communicated an adequate replacement plan. Repealing the law without an adequate replacement would do great harm to consumers, destabilize Georgia’s health insurance market, and stress our health care delivery system. Approximately one million Georgians would lose their health insurance by 2019, bringing the number of uninsured in our state to a staggering 2.4 million people – more than before the ACA was passed. Millions more would lose their basic rights and protections as consumers, and access to care would be at risk.

The newest Senate health care bill, called Graham-Cassidy, aims to cut federal funding for health care & make dramatic changes to Medicaid and the ACA. Among other changes, states would be allowed to roll back protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Having a pre-existing condition should not dictate an individual's ability to get health coverage. 1.8 million Georgians with asthma, history of depression or substance abuse, arthritis, or other pre-existing conditions stand to lose their health care if Graham-Cassidy is passed by the Senate. Call Sen. Isakson today at 202-224-3643 or 770-661-0999 and tell him to reject this bill to protect your care! ... See MoreSee Less
