National Association of Social Workers
Statement and Action Alert on the Repeal and Replacement of the Affordable Care Act
NASW strongly urges members of the House of Representatives to oppose the American Health Care Act (AHCA) as it is currently written. There are numerous reasons for our opposition outlined below, but notably we are wary of the bills provision for guaranteed “universal access” to health care and coverage. As defined in this legislation, the term “universal access” does not ensure that everyone actually has insurance. With that in mind, NASW is against ACHA for the following reasons.
