No Really,
it's Spring! 


Spring
While it may not feel like it where you live, we are a few days from Spring. Triage Cancer welcomes many of the new beginnings this season brings.

Spring can also mean change - Congress is currently considering The American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill that would make significant changes to our health care system. 

The AHCA does maintain protections for people with pre-existing conditions, but it may eliminate coverage or increase the cost for many. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the AHCA would lead to 24 million Americans losing their coverage.  

Of course, very few bills are ever passed exactly as they are introduced, so there may be more changes. And, even if this bill is passed by the House of Representatives, it still has to pass the Senate, and be signed by the President.

Read more about the proposed changes and stay tuned for more updates on our educational blog.
