The House Freedom Caucus officially endorsed a revised Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, delivering a fresh burst of momentum to the GOP’s efforts to revive its stalled health care effort.

This new version of the GOP repeal bill the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would be even worse for people with HIV. It would allow states to opt of providing essential health benefits and charge people with pre-existing conditions like HIV higher premiums. The initial bill would have left 24 million uninsured. This bill will leave coverage out of reach for even more Americans.

Please call your U.S. Representative NOW at (866) 246-9371 and tell them OPPOSE the Amended AHCA Repeal Bill. This number is toll-free and will connect you with your Representative.

Here is what you can say:

Hello my name is _______ and I live in [city & state]. I am a person [living with HIV /concerned about HIV]. I am calling to demand that you vote against the American Health Care Act. The American Health Care Act will hurt people living with and vulnerable to HIV by making it harder and more expensive to get the care they need. All Americans deserve better. I urge you to support people living with and vulnerable to HIV and oppose the American Health Care Act.

Now is not the time to be silent. Speak up and demand that your elected officials oppose the American Health Care Act.
