The Affordable Care Act: City of Philadelphia Action Guide

As the Trump administration continues to enact policies at odds with many Philadelphians’ beliefs , we understand the frustration or anger many of you are feeling. One of the most important things you can do is turn that anger into action: talk to your friends or neighbors, volunteer your time with a local community group, or donate to one of the many organizations that stands up for our residents.

To help you take action, the City put together guides that include quick facts, ways you can help, and other resources. Here’s our second action guide, on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Congress's plan to replace it, the Better Care Reconcilliation Act (BCRA).
