Reject Draconian Cuts to HIV Programs!

Now, more than ever, we must make our voices heard and let every member of Congress know how crucial robust HIV funding is to the health and welfare of their district or state. As they begin work on their FY 2018 budget, it is imperative that we maintain constant and unyielding pressure on our representatives and ensure that Congress protect and invest in the lives of Americans living with HIV.

Tell Congress to reject President Trump’s Draconian Cuts to HIV!

Health Care is (Again) Under Attack

The revised American Health Care Act prioritizes tax cuts for the rich, guts Medicaid as we know it, makes it harder for people to get quality insurance, and reduces government oversight of health care. Additionally, the American Health Care Act allows states to opt out of federal essential health benefits requirements and enables insurers to charge astronomically high premiums for pre-existing conditions.

Tell Congress that under the American Health Care Act, people living with HIV only stand to lose!


No HIV Cuts Allowed

The House and Senate committees in charge of federal health care spending are in the process of proposing funding levels for domestic HIV programs for the rest of this fiscal year and the chances that they will include some very disturbing cuts to crucial programs are high. There is still an opportunity to weigh in. Congress only has 5 legislative days to write a short-term spending bill before the continuing resolution that has been funding the federal government.

Tell Congress that any budget must invest significantly in the health of people living with HIV!

Altering Medicaid Shortchanges People Living with HIV

Republican proposals to alter the Medicaid program would be devastating for people living with HIV. Right now, Medicaid provides insurance to more than 40% of people living with HIV who are in care. 
 
Changes to the Medicaid program structure, like block granting the program or instituting per capita caps, shift costs to the states in the name of ‘flexibility.’ In reality, these changes ‘pass the buck’ to state governments who will then need to decide how to make the program work with less federal money. This is the biggest threat to health care as we know it.  Under these proposals, people living with HIV only stand to lose.

Don't Repeal the ACA Without an Immediate Replacement

The 115th Congress has barely even begun and lawmakers are already well on their way to repealing major sections of the ACA with a little more than an I.O.U. as a replacement. This sort of reckless governance cannot and must not be tolerated. If Congress and the Trump Administration are going to repeal the Affordable Care Act, then they must ensure that people living with and affected by HIV have access to affordable and comprehensive health care coverage and services they need to stay healthy.

Tell Congress that any repeal of the ACA must be accompanied by a replacement plan that protects people living with HIV and benefits all Americans.
