FEDERAL HEALTH REFORM:
The American Health Care Act (AHCA) recently passed by the House of Representatives proposes to radically restructure Medicaid and cut billions of dollars from the program. Compounding the uncertainty, Congress must act later this year to provide funding to keep the Child Health Insurance Program solvent (which is the Child Health Plus Program in New York). What exactly is being proposed and what will happen next? What actions can you take to educate Members of Congress on how these programs keep children healthy and thriving?
On Friday, June 9, the Children, Youth and Families Task Force of Health Care for All New York (HCFANY) held a webinar, Activating Your Networks to Protect Children’s Health Coverage. The Schuyler Center, Community Service Society and Children’s Defense Fund, NY have collaborated on this brief program to help you and your membership learn about what is at stake and how you can activate your network to protect health insurance coverage for children. You can view the webinar HERE.
