Sisters of Charity Health System Statement on the Senate's draft health care bill: the Better Care Reconciliation Act

The Sisters of Charity Health System believes families and communities are stronger when everyone has access to quality, affordable health care. Like many in the health care provider community, we stand in opposition to the Senate’s draft health care bill, called the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). The Senate proposal would have a devastating impact on our nation's most vulnerable populations. According to analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the BCRA would lead to 22 million more uninsured U.S. residents by 2026. [More]

Tell your senators to oppose the House health care repeal and replace bill

As Congress prepares to recess next week for Memorial Day, the Senate is moving closer to formulating legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Sisters of Charity Health System has strongly opposed the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA), and the most recent analysis of that bill has done nothing to lessen the harm it will do to millions of Americans who have gained coverage under the ACA and who rely on the Medicaid program. It is critical that all senators hear about our opposition to the House AHCA bill, that it is unfixable, and the need for the Senate to start over to fix the ACA. [More]
