West Virginians for Affordable Care Statement on Senate Attempt to Repeal Individual Mandate

West Virginians for Affordable Care Statement on Senate Attempt to Repeal Individual Mandate

From Executive Director Chantal Fields

2017.11.15

CHARLESTON, WV – “News from the U.S. Senate should have every West Virginian concerned about the future of their health care. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has previously reports this provision would cost 13 million people their health care with 4 million people losing employer-sponsored health care. Repealing the individual mandate will leave thousands of West Virginians without health care, raise the health care costs of all people and destabilize the already volatile health insurance market. West Virginians can not afford increased premiums or fewer health care choices.”
