Dear [Decision Maker],
As currently drafted, the AHCA will undermine mental health and substance use treatment for millions of Americans.
Specifically, it: Shifts costs from the Medicaid program onto our state, and by eliminating essential benefits for Medicaid, would lead to less mental health and substance use treatment for people in our state Makes private health insurance coverage less affordable for those struggling with mental health and substance use conditions and other chronic conditions like cancer and heart disease, pushing them into grossly underfunded "high risk pools" like auto insurance high risk pools - to get their coverage Puts up unnecessary barriers for people with mental health and substance use conditions to be continuously covered, such as extra fees including a new 30% insurance surtax on those who lose coverage for more than two months, less transparency, or more changes in eligibility

Please make sure we don't get a bad deal for mental health and substance use treatment especially not as Congress has promised to make it a priority. Please support amendments that would undo the damage that the AHCA would cause, and please vote "no" on any "TrumpScare" bill that does not include these protections.
