Coverage for mental health care helps people get treatment when they need it—allowing them to stay in school, on the job and in recovery.
Polls consistently show the public
supports the Affordable Care Act (ACA), with 75% in favor of maintaining the ACA's protections
for people with pre-existing conditions. Despite the federal administration, and our congressmen and Senators, pledging to protect people with pre-existing conditions, there are ongoing efforts to undermine the ACA and skirt consumer protections for mental health in the middle of an opioid crisis and the highest suicide rate in 30 years.
NAMI TN stands ready to fight any threats to the ACA and the pre-existing conditions protections and other consumer protections afforded under it.
