Take Action Tell your Representative to vote "No" on H.R. 3798

Late this week, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 3798 - a bill that threatens to eliminate employer-based health insurance coverage provided to millions of Americans under the Affordable Care Act ("ACA").

One of the main provisions in the bill would decrease the number of employers required to offer health coverage to employees under the ACA’s employer mandate, in part by defining a "full-time employee" as someone working 40, rather than 30, hours a week. The bill would also retroactively halt penalties on large employers that failed to offer comprehensive, affordable coverage to employees during the past 4 years. These changes would undermine critical ACA protections that ensure businesses provide health insurance to their employees and could result in a loss of coverage for many Americans.

H.R. 3798 is another attempt in the ongoing campaign to weaken the ACA and destabilize health insurance markets. Based on a previous estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office ("CBO"), these changes to the mandate would leave as many as 1 million people without employer-sponsored coverage that they currently rely on. As a result, between 500,000 and 1 million people would have to seek coverage through Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program ("CHIP"), or health insurance exchanges, and the number of insured would increase by as many as 500,000.

Please, send the letter below, to tell your Representatives to vote "No" on any H.R. 3798.
