ACTION ALERT: STOP THE REPEAL
ACA's transformational reforms provide universal health care for all Americans. Children will no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions, young adults can stay on their parents' health plans as dependents until age 26, Medicare participants will have annual check-ups and mammograms, and many uninsured Americans will now have health care coverage. It also include coverage of preventive care, limits on out-of-pocket costs, and a prohibition on life-time insurance caps. The ACA ensures that women can no longer be charged more for health care than men.
