The Senate has revitalized efforts to restructure the Medicaid program and replace the Affordable Care Act. This legislation could affect more than 80 million Americans, by some estimates. The American Occupational Therapy Association has grave concerns about the Graham-Cassidy Health Care bill and urges you to contact your Senators today. Our top five concerns with the bill include:

On Thursday June 22, the United States Senate released a discussion draft of their health care reform bill, called the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA). While much of the healthcare reform discussion has been about fixing or repealing the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), the major provisions of the bill released yesterday relate to Medicaid. After careful analysis, AOTA is deeply concerned that BCRA would undermine the Medicaid program and put the millions of children and adults with serious disabilities, students receiving special education support services, people receiving home and community based services, individuals with mental health needs, those in nursing homes, and many others at grave risk of reduced or lost benefits.
