Tell your representatives: Repealing Obamacare will make the opioid epidemic worse

If the ACA is repealed, Harvard-NYU researchers estimate that more than four million Americans will lose access to addiction and mental illness treatment.

And millions more would be at risk of missing out on future insurance coverage because addiction is considered a pre-existing condition. 

We can't let this happen. According to the CDC, we're in the midst of the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history, and drug overdose is now the #1 cause of accidental death in our country. Repealing the ACA without a replacement would make things worse for communities trying to fight back against the epidemic.

It's irresponsible and unacceptable to lose lives in the name of politics. Call, email, or tweet to your representatives right now and let them know.

Reach out to your representatives now. Call, email, or get in touch on social.

Thank you for taking action to save Obamacare, and preserve the life-saving mental illness and substance use disorder coverage it protects.

Meetings about the ACA repeal are happening right now, and we don't have a moment to spare: Share this campaign with your family and friends, and let's make sure our voices are heard loud and clear.

Here's a sample script you can follow once you're connected with your officials:

Hello, I'm your constituent from [LOCATION]. I'm calling to urge you to stop the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Researchers estimate that more than four million Americans will lose access to addiction treatment if the ACA is repealed.  

We're in the midst of the worst drug overdose epidemic in U.S. history. Repealing the ACA without a replacement would be irresponsible.

This issue is very important to me. I urge you to do everything in your power to save Obamacare and protect treatment for people with substance use disorders and mental illness.

 

Thank you!
