NHeLP Letter to Senate Leaders Urges Rejection of Graham-Cassidy Bill

Executive Summary

In a letter to U.S. Senate leaders, NHeLP details how the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and gut Medicaid funding would harm the more than 70 million individuals enrolled in Medicaid, and urges rejection of the measure. “The Graham-Cassidy proposal would effectively repeal Medicaid expansion … and convert Medicaid into a per capita cap coupled with billions of dollars in cuts. Every state will be impacted and will be forced to make deep cuts in services and eligibility,” NHeLP’s Sept. 20 letter states.
