You are invited to join us for the 2017 Health Summit: Advancing Policy for a Healthy Louisiana on Friday, March 24, 2017 from 9 AM to 5:30 PM (registration opens 8 AM).

Find out more about the Congressional House Republican’s “replacement” bill released just a couple of days ago to repeal broad pieces of the Affordable Care Act and make drastic and harmful changes to Medicaid that could result in millions of people losing their health care. This bill would substantially decrease financial assistance for low and middle income consumers, making coverage less affordable. Register today here
