The House of Representatives may vote on a repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act as soon as this Friday or Saturday.
The bill would:
- Cut $4 billion from West Virginia’s Medicaid program over a ten year period, an average of $400 million a year.
- Increase the number of Americans without insurance coverage by 24 million by 2026.
- Allow insurance companies to reimpose pre-existing conditions on Americans.
- End enrollment in West Virginia’s successful Medicaid expansion.

Suggested talking points:
Hello, my name is and I am from , West Virginia. I am asking Representative not to support the new amendments to the Republican health bill. These amendments would cut Medicaid funding, cause 24 million to lose insurance coverage, and potentially shut thousands of West Virginians with a pre-existing condition out of the health insurance marketplace.
Please take time to call today! Many thanks to you all!
We want our representatives in Congress to know that health reform that decreases coverage and shifts more costs to states and individuals is unacceptable.
Congress should build on the current system and improve it.
Please call your representatives and let them know!
Here’s an idea about what you could say:
Hello, my name is [NAME] from West Virginia. I am calling to let Senator / Representative know that I am strongly opposed to any health reform plan that reduces coverage, shifts costs to consumers and cuts Medicaid in West Virginia.
