We need your help right now to protect health care for over one million children in North Carolina.

Congress is moving forward with a bill that will repeal key portions of the ACA and dismantle Medicaid as we know it. Medicaid is the backbone health insurance program for North Carolina children—it provides health care to over one million children statewide, including children with disabilities and special needs. If this bill passes, fewer children will have health insurance and those that do will have diminished benefits.

Please take a moment today to call your Congressperson and Senators Burr and Tillis to urge them not to support any proposal that caps Medicaid. Below is a sample script for a phone message along with contact information.

Hi, my name is X. I live in [city/town] and am a constituent of [Congressperson X / Senator Y]. I’m calling to leave a message about the health care bill that would cap Medicaid and repeal portions of the ACA. 

 Capping Medicaid would jeopardize access to high-quality health insurance for North Carolina children, particularly the most vulnerable children such as those with disabilities and those in foster care. I urge you to oppose any proposal that includes caps to Medicaid, including the current proposal under consideration by the House of Representatives. Thank you.
