Advocacy  

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 987, the Strengthening Health Care and Lowering Prescription Drug Costs Act  

Access to healthcare is one of the contributors to health disparities in countries such as the United States that don't offer comprehensive universal healthcare coverage. Studies continue to demonstrate that uninsured individuals are less likely than those with insurance to receive preventive care and services for major health conditions and chronic diseases. 

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 987, the Strengthening Health Care and Lowering Prescription Drug Costs Act, a bill aimed at reversing the Trump administration’s expansions of substandard health plans and cuts to outreach and enrollment assistance. This successful passage followed the previous week's vote to block Trump Administration guidance weakening standards for state Affordable Care Act (ACA) waivers. H.R. 987 is comprised of several proposals that would vastly improve health coverage, protect people with preexisting conditions, and lower prescription drug costs by bringing generic drugs to market faster.

AMHP is also partnering with APIAHF and the Young Invincibles with grassroots take action page focused on the outreach and enrollment portions of the bill. The Expand Navigators’ Resources for Outreach, Learning and Longevity (ENROLL) Act would reinvest in the important work of the Affordable Care Act’s Navigator program to make healthcare more accessible to all Americans. Funding for this critical program has been cut by 84 percent under the Trump administration. The Trump administration’s funding cuts to this program have nearly destroyed the program’s ability to conduct their work. The ENROLL Act would restore this important funding and boost the critical work of the ACA navigators.

Take Action for health care access by emailing your congressperson to support the Enroll Act.
