Native Americans Among the Most Vulnerable if Obamacare is Repealed


Obamacare Repeal Could Slash Protections For Native Americans

A full ACA repeal could have “catastrophic consequences” for Native Americans, one health board leader said.

The repeal of the Affordable Care Act will leave millions of Americans without health care. The native people are just one segment of the population. Like the native people, millions of students, people working without benefits, and the poor will end up without health insurance.  The other problem is that when uninsured folks go to the emergency room for care, the cost of this treatment is absorbed by the hospital and the tax payers. Another important aspect is that if ACA is repealed without a replacement, then previous conditions will not be covered. So anything that you have been diagnosed with would not be covered going forward. This leaves many people in a hole. Families with children and the elderly will find themselves swamped with medical bills.

 

This would be a great time to write, call, or email your representatives. Tell them to either let the ACA alone or not to repeal it without a replacement. It is vital for our country going forward. Not having healthcare insurance will have a devastating on the lives of many families. Political party affiliation will not protect Americans as they try to avoid financial jeopardy – Republicans will be affected as easily as Democrats.
