The proposed health reforms currently being considered by Congress would bring significant changes to our health system, threatening health coverage for millions of Americans and the progress we have made in the last half-century with the enactment of Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. Medicaid is a public health program that for 50 years has provided qualify, affordable care to the most vulnerable Americans—mostly children, seniors, and people with disabilities. The ACA is a landmark piece of legislation that resulted in the lowest uninsured rate ever recorded, established rights and protections for health care consumers, and provided opportunities to advance health equity.
Protect Our Care Georgia is a broad coalition of community stakeholders and advocates from all across our state. We have launched a shared campaign to ensure that all Georgians get and keep the health coverage and care they need. We want to strengthen, not cut, our state’s Medicaid program. We want to build on, not repeal, the Affordable Care Act. Health care is critically important to the health of Georgia’s families, communities, and economy. We believe we should work together to make our health system work better for everyone, not rush changes through that would harm Georgians.
The Protect Our Care Georgia campaign is fighting for quality, affordable coverage for all Georgians and we need your help.
