Call in to Protect Mental Health Care Services!

Steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have tremendous impact on access to mental health services. The ACA helped remove barriers to mental health in communities of color and allowed millions of Californians to create healthier lives. But these gains are at risk! Through Medi-Cal and Covered California, many more people with mental illness or substance use disorders have been able to get help and the treatment they need. If the ACA is repealed, millions of Californians will lose coverage and benefits, making our communities more vulnerable.
 
Check out CPEHN’s latest fact sheet, “Repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA): What’s at Stake for Californians Benefiting from Mental Health Care Services?” for more in-depth analyses.
 
We must let Congress know how important the ACA is for Californians who need access to these critical mental health services
 
Your calls and emails are working! Some Republican Congress members have said they will not vote until a replacement plan is in place. President-elect Trump says his new plan will cover everyone. Let’s hold him to that promise! Make your voice heard today!
 
On Thursday, January 19, 2017 we urge you to call your congressional leaders to tell them to vote NO on ACA repeal legislation without a viable replacement.
