The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is under immediate threat in Congress. The consequences of repealing the ACA are far reaching, and would impact the entire health care system including Medicare and Medicaid. For older adults, these programs serve as a lifeline that insures access to critical medical care. Repeal of the ACA would jeopardize the care seniors receive every day by reducing coverage, and ending programs seniors rely on to remain in their homes and communities. The out-of-pocket costs seniors pay today for care would increase, straining already tight budgets.
This webinar, How ACA Repeal would Hurt Seniors, provided a summary of the impact an ACA repeal would have on low-income older adults, including how it would affect seniors who rely on Medicaid and Medicare. We also provided an update on the efforts Congress is taking to effectuate a repeal and what procedural steps are yet to come.
