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.

New Threat to Health Care Coverage!

President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaug has openly criticized Chief Justice Roberts for voting to uphold the ACA and, from the bench, repeatedly voiced his opposition. The NPA and many allies believe he poses a distinct threat to the ACA and people with pre-existing conditions – read the statement submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee by Families USA & 120 Health Care Organization, including the NPA.

Call Your Senators Today!

Tell your Senators: “Insurance companies should NOT again be allowed to deny coverage to people with pre-existing coverage. We need a judge on the Court who has not already expressed opposition to the ACA and will be a fair and neutral decision-maker. I urge you to help protect people who live with pre-existing conditions and vote NO on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.”
