Vote "NO" on the American Health Care Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to vote "no" on the American Health Care Act.This bill would be devastating for all people like me with Duchenne and other disabilities and chronic health conditions.
The AHCA will allow insurers to charge me an unaffordable premium based solely only because my/my child's diagnosis.The ACHA includes proposed cuts to Medicaid that could potentially be devastating to the Duchenne community -- and my family -- and will harm our nation's most vulnerable communities. The AHCA removes requirements that insurers cover certain services such as prescription drugs, and other essential health benefits which will make it harder for me to manage the devastating impact of Duchenne. This also means that more of my/my child's treatments can have lifetime and annual limits and unlimited out-of-pocket costs applied -- potentially causing our personal health care costs to grow exponentially and make life-sustaining treatment unaffordable. If the AHCA passes, I will certainly pay more money for insurance that will benefit me less.
Please think of my family and millions of families like mine who will be devastated by this bill if it passes.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
