MILWAUKEE, WI
– In four days, Trump’ Administration lawyers will go to court to overturn our health care laws. If President Trump succeeds in Texas v. United States, costs will go up, coverage will get worse, and millions of Americans will lose their health insurance.

If Trump gets his way:

MEDICAID EXPANSION WOULD BE ELIMINATED 

  • Seventeen Million People Enrolled Through Medicaid Expansion Could Lose Coverage.

  • Access To Treatment Would Be In Jeopardy For 800,000 People With Opioid Use Disorder. Roughly four in ten, or 800,000 people with an opioid use disorder are enrolled in Medicaid. Many became eligible through Medicaid expansion.

  • Key Support For Rural Hospitals Would Disappear, leaving hospitals with $9.6 billion more in uncompensated care.
