From the National Council for Behavioral Health:
Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 20, advocates from across the country will join together for a nationwide advocacy call-in day to oppose the American Health Care Act. Save time on your calendar tomorrow to call your Senators and urge them to vote “No” on this legislation and any other legislation that results in cuts or rollbacks of Medicaid.
The Senate is gearing up for a vote on such legislation by the end of next week, so NOW is the time to speak up and protect Medicaid.
Taking action is easy:
- Dial this number: 202-224-3121
- Ask for your Senator.
- Share with them this message:
- Your message: “I am calling about the American Health Care Act. I urge you to oppose any proposal that results in cuts or rollbacks of Medicaid. Medicaid is the single largest payer of mental health and addiction treatment services in the country. Any proposals that rollback Medicaid coverage or restrict people’s access to treatment will have a significant impact on this vulnerable population. The House-passed bill directly targets important health care protections like the essential health benefits, protections for those with pre-existing conditions and hurts efforts to achieve parity in health care. I’m calling from [city, state, and zip] and my name is [first and last name].”
- Call your other Senator and share the same message!
Thank you to all who have taken action on this issue so far this year. We appreciate your hard work and dedication and ask that you continue to mobilize and advocate on this critical issue! Together, we can protect and preserve Medicaid for millions of American in need.
