Proposed Healthcare Bill Impact

Posted on

From United Way of Metropolitan Chicago

We’d like to share with you a few facts about the efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and dismantle Medicaid.

The ACA:


  • The House is also proposing to change the way the Federal government funds the entire Medicaid program, which would include substantial cuts in federal Medicaid funding. If enacted, this would very likely result in the rationing of health care services for seniors, children with disabilities, and other vulnerable populations (see attached fact sheet).
  • 2Mil people in Illinois currently have health coverage through Medicaid. That’s 1 out of every 4 Illinois residents who would be harmed by reduced federal funding for Medicaid.

We ask that you call, write, and tweet Governor Rauner and Members of Congress and ask them to #ProtectOurCare.
