Peer Health Exchange Disapproves of House-Passed American Health Care Act

Published on May 8th, 2017

With our partners, Peer Health Exchange aims to advance health equity and improve health outcomes for young people. PHE stands with organizations like the School-Based Health Alliance in expressing our deep concern about the House passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA). If signed into law, the AHCA could endanger millions of young people and their ability to access health care. In particular, we are disappointed to see that under the AHCA, Medicaid and individual market providers could eliminate substance use and mental health treatment from coverage. Medicaid restructuring could also jeopardize students’ ability to access critical health services in school-based health centers.

We urge you to show up for the young people in your city who deserve access to the health resources and services they need to live healthy lives.
