Step 1: Call your Members of Congress

Use the legislative lookup tool to the right to find the phone numbers for your senators and representative.

Recommended Community Catalyst Call Script:

Good [morning/afternoon]. My name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY/TOWN][STATE]. As a constituent, I think it’s critical for all people to have affordable, high-quality health care. People like me across the country spoke out against the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that narrowly passed the House – we stood up for our health care.

The AHCA would not only raise premiums and cause millions of people to lose coverage, it would allow insurance companies to deny coverage for basic health services like maternity care or prescription drugs, and it would gut protections for people with preexisting conditions. This bill slashes Medicaid – which could force states to cut funding for children with special healthcare needs, people with disabilities and seniors who need assistance to stay in their own homes.

I am asking that you oppose any Senate plan that would take health insurance coverage away from millions, decimate our Medicaid program, and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

[OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: ADD 2-3 SENTENCES ABOUT YOUR OWN PERSONAL STORY AND WHY THIS ISSUE IS IMPORTANT TO YOU]

President Trump promised people with preexisting conditions would be protected, premiums would do down, he would protect Medicaid, and “everyone will be covered.” However, the AHCA, which the president fervently supported, would do the exact opposite.

This AHCA would be disastrous for my family, our community, and me. If you support this bill or a variation of it that causes people to lose coverage, increases costs, and removes consumer protections – your constituents will not forget it.

Thank you.
