Tell Congress: STOP TARGETING MENTAL HEALTH

The American Health Care Act would leave millions of Americans without mental health coverage and strip Medicaid of billions of dollars in funding. And the bill has gotten worse.

The recently introduced “MacArthur Amendment” would let states get waivers allowing health insurance plans to:

  • Not cover mental health and substance use treatment (also known as letting insurers scrap "essential health benefits")
  • Charge people with mental illness more



Call your members of Congress. 
Use our talking points below.

  • Hello, my name is _____ and I am a constituent. Please tell Representative/Senator _______ to REJECT the American Health Care Act and the MacArthur Amendment.
  • The American Health Care Act would leave millions of Americans without mental health coverage and strip Medicaid funding.
  • The recently-introduced “MacArthur Amendment” would let states get waivers allowing health insurance plans to not cover mental health and substance use treatment and charge people with mental illness more.
  • It's outrageous to even suggest that mental health coverage is optional and to charge people more because they have a mental health condition.
  • Medicaid coverage is also under threat. It covers important mental health services that help people with mental illness get better and stay better.
  • Please tell Representative/Senator _______ to keep what works for mental health and REJECT the American Health Care Act and the MacArthur Amendment. Thank you.
Thanks for your support!
This campaign has now concluded.
