healthcare PROPOSALS & DELIBERATIONS
There's a three-legged stool supporting children's healthcare in this country, which is especially critical for children with complex medical needs -- like pediatric cancer.
While there's much more work to be done to strengthen all three pillars of this stool, we're grateful that it remains standing after July 27th's late-night Senate vote against the 'skinny repeal' bill.
Thanks to all of you who spoke up -- your emails, tweets and calls worked!
Senate leadership has indicated they will likely revisit healthcare proposals through the Committee process. The Children's Cause looks forward to working with Congress on crafting a measure that fixes affordability issues while protecting the access and care of families fighting childhood cancer.
We continue to collect healthcare testimonials from childhood cancer families, and we would love to hear from you -- especially if you have experience with coverage under CHIP, Medicaid or the ACA exchanges. Your stories make us much stronger advocates in Washington as we fight for quality, affordable healthcare for our nation's children.
