Secure Health Care for All

The 2010 federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) put America on the path to quality and affordable health care for all.  Over the years the law has faced a multitude of legal and political challenges from opponents seeking to overturn its new health insurance regulations, consumer protections, and coverage expansions.  The NPA is actively working to ensure that these protections and coverage expansions guaranteed through the ACA are built upon, not dismantled.

Renewed Attempt to Repeal ACA

Urge Rejection of  Graham-Cassidy Repeal Bill

Senators Graham (SC) & Cassidy (LA) are advancing a new ACA repeal bill and pressing for a vote in the Senate that would be devastating for patients and communities. This ill-conceived bill:

  • Converts the Medicaid program to block grants with per capita caps
  • Ends Medicaid Expansion
  • Punished people with Pre-Existing Conditions
  • Eliminates subsidies that help moderate income people afford coverage
