The American Health Care Act: What’s at Stake for Our Mental Health?
For Family Caregivers and Adults Concerned about Themselves or Others
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 3:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM PT
Repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law by former president Barack Obama, is a top agenda item for the Republican-controlled Congress. The ACA was instrumental in expanding coverage for mental health care with the establishment of essential health benefits and the expansion of Medicaid. These benefits are likely to end, however, if the new American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, becomes law. Champions of the AHCA argue that it will lower premiums for all Americans and provide better access to care. As the Senate debates the future of the AHCA, Families for Depression Awareness and the National Council for Behavioral Health want you to be informed of what these changes might mean for the people you care about. Tune in to our upcoming webinar to learn how repeal and replace could affect you and your family.
