Millions of Americans who suffer from mental health and substance abuse
issues could be left without insurance under House Republicans' plan for
repealing the Affordable Care Act, behavioral health groups and researchers
told Bloomberg BNA recently.
Behavioral health groups are lobbying House Republicans as they put the
final touches on their ACA repeal bill this week, asking lawmakers to
preserve Medicaid expansion funds. Many industry groups remain uncertain
about the future of federal Medicaid funding and Republicans' plan for ACA
requirements that insurers cover mental health and addiction treatment.
