from NDNRC: Yesterday, the House voted on and approved the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and it now moves to the Senate for consideration. Back when the AHCA was originally introduced in March, we did a blog post analyzing what the AHCA would mean for people with disabilities. However, recent amendments to the bill changed this analysis as the MacArthur amendment specifically addresses protections for people with pre-existing conditions. We have a new blog post which examines what the new version of the AHCA would mean for people with disabilities and includes a look at high-risk pools which have been proposed as a possible solution to address people with pre-existing conditions. For that new blog post which includes a list of resources on high-risk pools, click here . For the reasons stated in the blog post, the American Association on Health and Disability (the lead partner for the NDNRC) continues to oppose the AHCA and now urges the Senate to reject it.
