The Affordable Care Act (ACA), enacted in 2010, has made health insurance available to millions of Americans who were unable to afford it or who had pre-existing conditions that made them uninsurable.
Having HD anywhere in your family’s background made you virtually uninsurable until the passage of the ACA. This included people with symptoms, people at risk for HD or those who took a genetic test for HD indicating that they will get HD in the future.
The expansion of Medicaid under the ACA was also a lifesaver for many of us.
Even before inauguration day, the new Congress is taking immediate steps to deprive millions of us of access to health insurance! They are about to defund the ACA with nothing to take its place!
The HD community can make a difference by calling your senators and representatives and telling them you OPPOSE repealing the Affordable Care Act!
Phone calls can make a difference! Even one phone call can help!
