SENATE HEALTH REFORM BILL MUST PROTECT
THOSE IN NEED AND THEIR HOSPITALS

As the Senate considers health care policies that will affect millions of people, Einstein urges lawmakers to protect low-income and other disadvantaged Americans and the hospitals on which they depend.

We offer these recommendations to senators as they follow House approval of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) by drafting their bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Einstein supports maintaining health care coverage and access.
The House version of the AHCA would leave 23 million more people uninsured than under current law.

Please call your Senators today and urge them to:

  • Reject arbitrary cuts to Medicaid.
  • Maintain the state option to continue the ACA’s Medicaid expansion.
  • Repeal cuts to Medicaid disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payments.
  • Protect non-DSH supplemental payments to hospitals.
