ACEP ACTION ALERT – VOTE “NO” on the BCRA
On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its estimate that the BCRA would lead to 22 million more uninsured Americans in 10 years and not immediately help reduce premiums, which led to even more concern and uncertainty for Republican members.
ACEP launched its Action Alert in opposition to the BCRA proposal on Monday. Nearly 1000 ACEP members have already taken action to urge their U.S. Senators to oppose the bill in its current draft. The BCRA would make sweeping changes to the health care system that directly contradict ACEP’s health care reform principles and would lead to a significant reduction in health care coverage for Americans, erode patient protections, such as coverage for emergency services, as well as endanger patient safety and public health. Please keep the pressure on while Senators are back home during the 4th of July recess.
