 Build Back Better Act Includes Health Care Measures That Will Dramatically Lower Costs and Expand Coverage for Working Families

Washington, D.C. On Friday, November 19 at 10:15 AM ET, U.S. Representatives Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ-06), Robin Kelly (D-IL-02), and Lauren Underwood (D-IL-14) will join Protect Our Care to react to the passage of the Build Back Better Act in the House. The landmark legislation includes measures to deliver relief to American families by lowering insurance premiums, giving Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, expanding affordable coverage to millions by closing the Medicaid coverage gap, expanding Medicare benefits to cover hearing, and investing $150 billion in home care for seniors and people with disabilities. During the call, speakers will stress the urgent need for the Senate to move quickly to pass the bill so millions of Americans can finally afford the health care they need.
