Harvard-NYU researchers estimate that more than four million Americans will lose access to substance use and mental illness treatment if the ACA is repealed without a replacement law that protects this essential insurance coverage.
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.
As our representatives work toward replacing the Affordable Care Act, we must let them know that protecting access to insurance coverage for substance use disorder treatment is incredibly important.
