 Affordable Care Act

In September 2018, WomenHeart advisors Dr. Nanette Wenger and Dr. Noel Bairey Merz, along with Dr. Beverly H. Lorell made the case for why “recent legislation and public policy changes are particularly relevant to the cardiovascular community.” They argued that current policy trends to undermine the ACA “will adversely affect women’s general and specific CVD health.”

To learn more from WomenHeart about the impact of the ACA and what’s at stake, please read our Affordable Care Act fact sheet. 

President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law in March 2010. Since then, more than 20 million Americans have gained health insurance through the marketplace, many of whom never had coverage before. 

Now, Congress is writing legislation to repeal the law and replace it with a new health plan. The Senate version of a replacement is the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). 

The following is a comparison of how selected provisions will affect women with heart disease in the proposed Senate bill (the BCRA) vs. the existing law (the ACA).

Even women with health insurance encounter barriers to treatment. Learn how that happens - and what to do about it - in our Know Your Rights fact sheet.
