Strengthening IDENTITY | Preserving INTEGRITY | Advocating PARITY
Dear CSWA Members,
As you know, a vote on a health care bill that would repeal and/or replace the Affordable Care Act has been scheduled in the Senate tomorrow. There is no clarity from leadership exactly about what will be in the bill. Therefore, it is difficult for CSWA to give specific guidance any what message to give your senators. Here is a summary of the possible bill that will be voted on.
The CBO score on the BCRA, which came out last Monday, had the same 22-23 million that would lose insurance as the AHCA.
All the bills we have heard about are damaging to access to mental health treatment, mental health parity, and coverage for Medicaid enrollees who need mental health services.
I will let you know more when the actual bill is finally revealed. In CSWA's view, this process is an example of bad governance. It seems very politically based and has little to do with people getting good health care or actually improving the ACA.
