This year, Congress will debate and create laws that impact the every-day lives of individuals with pulmonary hypertension. Laws about healthcare services, insurance coverage, copay assistance programs and more. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association makes it easy for you to educate your elected officials about the needs of the PH community. Be heard. Be a PH advocate.
Another effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is underway. The amended replacement bill, still called the American Health Care Act, would remove protections for individuals with pre-existing health conditions. It would also eliminate federal quality standards for health insurance policies. Congress must insist on health policy with strong protections for individuals with costly, complex health conditions.
