ACHA Statement on Renewed ACA Repeal and Replace Effort
The American College Health Association urges Senate leaders to reject the new proposed Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal and replace measure, H.R. 1628, commonly known as the Graham-Cassidy Amendment. As drafted, the legislation would lead to tremendous variability in coverage from state-to-state and fails to ensure adequate funding for Medicaid to protect our nation's most vulnerable.

Additionally, ACHA has joined other higher education associations in signing the American Council on Education's letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) raising concerns about the impact of this proposed legislation. To read the letter, please click here.

ACHA urges leaders in Congress to defend the “dreamers” by swiftly enacting legislation that will protect their legal status to remain, study, and work in the United States.
