Prior to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), cancer survivors were at the mercy of the health care system, often forced to pay exorbitant premiums or simply denied coverage altogether. Today, America’s 16 million cancer survivors benefit from the ACA’s patient protections that are critical to providing them with quality, affordable, and accessible health care coverage. NCCS is actively engaged in advocating to ensure this unprecedented access for cancer patients and providers continues.
Earlier today, NCCS hosted a brief Facebook Live event to break down the most recent developments about the harmful Graham-Cassidy ACA repeal bill and what you can do to help stop it from becoming law.

In the video, NCCS CEO Shelley Fuld Nasso and Policy Manager Lindsay Houff go over the details of this disastrous legislation that would cause millions of Americans to lose insurance coverage and access to affordable care, and would eliminate vital patient protections guaranteed by the ACA. Shelley and Lindsay also go over some ideas for what you can do to stop this bill in its tracks.

Call (844) 257-6227 to be directly connected to your Senators; tell them to vote NO on Graham-Cassidy and to support a bipartisan and transparent process to strengthen the ACA and help provide critical long-term stability.
