The Affordable Care Act in New Mexico: Protecting 112,000 Children

The Affordable Care Act provides quality, affordable health care for millions of Americans. Because of the ACA, since 2010, up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions such as asthma or cancer can no longer be denied health care or be forced pay more for coverage because of their health status.

“It is appalling that Republicans continue trying to repeal Obamacare. Aside of all the other benefits that the Affordable Care Act provides, the ACA ensures that the most vulnerable Americans are protected. Thanks to the ACA 112,000 children in New Mexico with pre-existing conditions can’t be discriminated against because of their health, and their parents don’t have to constantly worry about financial problems from their children’s care,” said DPNM Chairman Sam Bregman.

He added, “If Republicans got their way 112,000 children in New Mexico would lose their coverage and no longer have these protections. The GOP is blinded by politics—Obamacare is already working for millions of Americans, it should be a no brainer.”
