The Zombie Bill Is Back: ACA Repeal and Replace Bill Refuses To Die

It. Just. Won't. Die. After 2 conservative Republicans came out against the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) on Monday evening, it seemed for all the world like the Senate health care bill was on its last legs. However, after an impromptu lunch meeting at The White House consisting of equal parts carrot and stick, the Senate GOP has revived the BCRA and is trying once more to pass a bill that would uninsure at least 22 million people.

AU Opposes New Senate BCRA Draft Bill

In releasing their most recent revision of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), Senate Republican leaderships shows a desire to appease conservatives within the party and all but dares moderates to vote against it.

With media coverage and public scrutiny increasingly focused on the GOP’s Senate health care bill and the various scandals plaguing the Trump administration, the flurry of activity around appropriations in the House has flown under the radar. However, as the recent release of the Labor, Health and Human Services Bill that zeros out the HHS Secretary's Minority AIDS Initiative and eliminates crucial reproductive health programs has shown, HIV advocates absolutely must pay attention

The Fight for Our Health Care is Only Getting Started

At the start of the year, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act looked like a foregone conclusion. But thanks to the incredible advocacy and resistance of millions of Americans and the HIV community--along with some Republican infighting--the ACA is still intact and we have a chance to kill the Senate health care bill once and for all if keep the pressure on.

The Senate Health Care Bill is Mean and Heartless

Medicaid Cuts and Caps: Which States Are Most Affected and How?

From 1965 to today, Medicaid has been jointly financed by states and the federal government and serves as the nation’s primary public health insurance program for eligible, low-income adults, children, pregnant women and people with certain disabilities. With the Affordable Care Act (ACA)’s expansion of Medicaid, the program became an even more vital part of America’s health care landscape, and added more than 11 million previously uneligible people to the program. The American Health Care Act (AHCA), currently being revised behind closed doors by Senate Republicans, will significantly reduce federal funding for Medicaid expansion and will fundamentally alter how Medicaid is structured and financed.
