The BNR Legislative and Regulatory Committee was created to advocate for the community, healthcare, and healthcare practitioner. Creating collaborative partnerships, we strive to bridge the gap between influential government policies and the communities in which we serve, by supporting healthcare initiative reform that promotes good practice, standards of care and inclusion
H.R. 277 Bill- The Affordable Healthcare Act is currently on the table to be mutilated- Creating an opportunity for 18 MILLION Americans to be without healthcare coverage. The bill will also improve the opportunity for health insurance premiums to be increased by and additional 20-25%- Leaving behind a trail of an estimated additional 32 million people within 10 years- And that is only the tip of the iceberg!
The blocked amendment that was voted 51-48 by U.S. Senate will aim:
1. To END coverage for preexisting conditions, veterans benefits, and aid to rural hospitals.
2. To remove discrimination protection for women in healthcare.
3. Against the provision allowing children to remain on their parent's insurance till the age of 26.
4. To cut off funding for the Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
5. Against ACA contraceptive coverage and maternity care provision.
6. To direct committees to send budget legislation to defund and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
For those who get health insurance through work, no pre-existing conditions. Lifetime caps for coverage are back for everyone.
Real and disastrous actions are being taken that will affect more than just the 20-30 million people who will lose their health care coverage and the 3 million people who will lose their jobs.
Despite their assertions of this being an action to "repeal and replace," no viable alternative plan has been proposed.
The House voted Friday, on the same measures and passed them 227-198.
As of this moment, no replacement exists.
Join us as we unite as a collective to reach out to our local and federal legislative partners to hear from us that WE will not support the EPIC tragedy that will occur should our American families go on without healthcare.
Let's make sure that your voice is clearly heard- That America will become great and we will be the ones to work towards that.
