100 HIV/AIDS organizations sign letter urging Congress to oppose American Health Care Act

March 22, 2017

One hundred HIV/AIDS organizations signed a letter to Congress today strongly urging members to oppose passing the American Health Care Act, or AHCA, because an estimated 24 million Americans would likely lose health insurance coverage, including thousands of patients with HIV, if it is enacted.

The letter, sponsored by the Federal AIDS Policy Partnership’s HIV Health Care Access Working Group, warns that the AHCA weakens the federal commitment to Medicaid, threatens access to health care for low-income Americans, and undermines “key elements” in the ACA. The letter further cautions that without reliable access to care, the bill would prevent many individuals with HIV from fully benefiting from effective treatment.
