Act Now to Help Save Health Care Protections for Those With Food Allergies

The ACA includes protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Their goal is to vote on the repeal before Sept. 30, 2017. This bill, commonly called the Graham-Cassidy bill, could cause millions of Americans to lose health insurance. If passed, health insurance could become unaffordable for people with chronic conditions and low incomes.
