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:

 

  • Will insurance and Medicaid cover OT?
  • What will happen to hospitals?
  • Will children be affected? What about Medicaid funding in schools?
  • Will people with pre-existing conditions or older individuals still be able to afford coverage?
  • What will happen to the insurance market, including your own health insurance?
  • It is important that your Legislators hear from you, their constituents. Protect the profession. Protect the people we serve. Act today!

Sincerely,

Heather Parsons
Associate Chief Officer for Federal Affairs
