Repeal of the Affordable Care Act Could be Devastating for those with Birth Injuries

Fortunately, the vote on the Republican Heatlh Care plan has been delayed. If passed, the plan could have devastating consequences for those born with birth injuries.

According to estimates put out by the Congressional Budget Office, roughly 24 million people stand to lose coverage if the new health bill were to become law. Among those losing coverage would be those with pre-existing conditions, and Medicaid recipients.

For families caring for children with birth injuries, or those who have suffered serious injuries - the elimination of those provisions drastically reduces their ability to affordably provide the care and assistance needed. As a mother whose child has cerebral palsy explains, Medicaid has helped us get a ramp for our house, helps with co-pays on multiple surgeries, medications, wheel chairs.

These existing provisions serve as a crucial safety net.
