Efforts in Congress to cut Medicaid jeopardize a critical source of health coverage for veterans. Approximately 1.75 million veterans—nearly 1 in 10—have Medicaid as a source of coverage.
Make no mistake: Decisions made by President Trump and the Republicans in Congress remain the primary threat to the stability of the market and the future of the ACA.
If Republicans in Congress end the ACA's Medicaid expansion or radically change the structure of the Medicaid program by capping or cutting funding, it could severely hurt rural Americans and cripple state economies across the country.
The American Health Care Act is not a suitable replacement for the Affordable Care Act and should be rejected.
The House Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and cut the Medicaid program would cause immediate and critical problems for American Indian and Alaska Native peoples. Repeal would take funding away from federally recognized tribes and tribal organizations that now provide comprehensive health services in Alaska.
