Energy & Commerce and Oversight Dems Release State Fact Sheets on Impact of GOP Assault on ACA
Today, Reps. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) and Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), the Ranking Members of the House Committees on Oversight and Government Reform and Energy and Commerce, released detailed state-by-state fact sheets summarizing the devastating effects on individuals and families if President-elect Trump and congressional Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The fact sheets summarize the threat Republicans’ repeal of the ACA would have on every state, and includes national details on how repeal of the ACA would make America sick again, including:
- 20 million individuals who have gained coverage since the ACA was implemented could lose their coverage if the ACA is entirely or partially repealed, including 3.4 million kids.
- 137.7 million individuals who now have private health insurance that covers preventive services without any co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles stand to lose this access if the Republican Congress eliminates ACA provisions requiring health insurers to cover important preventive services without cost-sharing.
- Roughly 52.2 million individuals who have pre-existing health conditions are at risk of having their coverage rescinded, being denied coverage, or being charged significantly more for coverage if the Republican Congress eliminates the ACA’s ban on pre-existing conditions.
