The House is expected to begin debate on AHCA this morning and have final votes today, perhaps by 5pm. Despite amendments aimed at gaining more moderate Republican support, the AHCA would be devastating to people with mental health and substance use disorder care needs.
Please call your Member of Congress today to ask them to oppose the AHCA. Here is a tool from Protect our Care that you can share or you can use SEIU’s numbers (English 866-426-2631; Spanish 877-736-7831).
Sample call script:
I am a constituent of Representative _____’s and am calling to urge him/her to vote NO on AHCA today.Restricting access to treatment for mental health and substance use disorders would be a national tragedy, as the twin epidemics of suicide and opioid overdose claim over 250 lives every day. These short-sighted policies could leave millions of people without treatment, drive up hospital emergency visits, and devastate families and communities
