Urge Your Congressman to Vote No on Stripping Pre-existing Condition Protections

Join the Endocrine Society in advocating to protect people with pre-existing conditions and the millions who stand to lose their healthcare coverage.

Republicans in the House of Representatives continue to work to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA), their bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. They have proposed changes that would make their flawed bill even worse by making coverage more expensive – if not out of reach – for poor and sick Americans. A vote on the AHCA could happen as early as this week! We need you to contact your member of Congress today and urge them to vote NO on the AHCA and any related amendments.

These changes do nothing to fix the AHCA or ensure that 24 million people would not lose their health insurance, and would impact the most vulnerable by granting states the right to determine which essential health benefits must be covered by insurers in their state. This ultimately will strip away protections for people with pre-existing conditions and allow insurers to charge them substantially more, effectively denying coverage due to high costs.

Contact your member of Congress today by joining our online campaign. You will need to provide EITHER your home address OR your email and member ID. Our software will provide you with an email you can personalize if you choose to and will direct the email to your Representative and Senators. The Endocrine Society has shared its concern that people with pre-existing conditions must be covered, but Congress needs to hear from YOU!
