This weekend marks the ninth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Despite the remarkable success of the legislation, politicians continue to try and weaken the ACA’s protections. We are asking you to call your members of Congress to let them know that you support the ACA and to urge them to protect it. Consider sharing a patient story or example from your experience.
I am a physician and a constituent in Representative ____'s district. This weekend is the ninth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). I have seen firsthand the impact that this legislation has on patients. Women no longer have to pay more for their coverage because of their gender; patients with preexisting conditions have been able to access care they need; and insurance must cover basic preventive care including contraception. I urge Representative ____ to protect the ACA and work to expand access to health care. My patients and your constituents depend on it.
