Health Equity

healthequity

In addition to overall health outcomes and indicators that consistently place Georgia in the bottom tier nationally, our state has considerable health disparities between communities. Racial and ethnic minority communities, rural and low-income urban communities, and those with disabilities and chronic mental illness, all experience worse health and worse opportunities for health than their peers. Georgians for a Healthy Future supports policies and practices that advance the opportunities for optimal health for all Georgians.

The newest version of the ACA repeal bill still strips health care away from 560,000 Georgians, raises premiums in Georgia by an average of $3000+, and cuts our state's Medicaid program by $4 billion. There's new stuff in the bill too! Now it guts protections for people with pre-existing conditions, ends national standards on what health care services insurers have to cover, and ends the nation wide ban on annual & lifetime benefit caps.

The House of Representatives wants to vote on this bill tomorrow! Call your member of Congress NOW: 866-426-2631
