While the AAFP supports the need to improve the Affordable Care Act, we are deeply concerned that the AHCA will result in millions of currently insured patients losing their health care coverage and access to you as their medical home.

We are also concerned that the AHCA will worsen financial strain on a large number of individuals and families.

Speak Out as a Family Physician

Please contact your Minnesota Senators and tell them how this flawed proposal affects family medicine.

  1. Send this prewritten letter directly to Senators Franken and Klobuchar. Tell your elected officials to promptly put aside the AHCA, and instead work to achieve real bipartisan solutions that will improve affordability, access, and coverage for all.
  2. Follow up with a brief phone call. Simply identify yourself as a credible constituent, tell them what bill or issue you are calling about, clearly and concisely state your position, and ask how they feel, all in around 2-3 minutes.

The Honorable Amy Klobuchar

The Honorable Al Franken
