Issue Background

Healthcare Reform

HDSA strongly supports healthcare reform that expands affordable access to care, and protects those with chronic and disabling illnesses. 

HDSA is also committed to advocating for healthcare reform that includes: Essential Health Benefits, protections for pre-existing conditions, expansions of the Medicaid program and medcation choice. 

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the creation of the insurance exchanges, HDSA has been active in making sure that people with HD are informed and aware of their rights and protections under the ACA. Now, as we look towards healthcare reform, HDSA will continue to ensure that vulnerable people, like those with HD, continue to be protected and allowed access to affordable healthcare.
