n4a Releases Analysis of Risks of ACA Repeal to Older Adults and the Aging Network
Last week, lawmakers in Congress took the first steps toward repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) when, the House and Senate passed, largely along party lines, a budget resolution that included instructions to legislative committees to develop proposals to rescind key parts of the law.
The resolution sets in motion the legislative process to repeal the ACA. n4a has developed a policy issue brief that evaluates the implications that ACA repeal could have for older adults, caregivers and Aging Network entities—especially AAAs and Title VI Native American aging programs—that serve these populations.
Developed as an advocacy tool for our members and other aging advocates, the policy brief identifies key issues and questions that Aging Network stakeholders and aging advocates should be asking their elected officials as ACA replacement proposals are discussed and introduced.
