Bakground:

One of the biggest tolls the American Health Care Act (aka TrumpCare or RepubliCare) will take is on Planned Parenthood, which will lose its ability to apply for reimbursements under Medicaid. Planned Parenthood handles 1.5 million visits each year at its 115 health care centers for 800,000 individual patients in California ALONE. According to the California Primary Care Association, California’s safety net providers do not have the ability to absorb the 800,000 patients who rely on Planned Parenthood for care in our state1. (Remember, pregnancy termination is not part of this reimbursement to begin with. This is for basic health services, prenatal care, cancer and STD screenings, and education.) To learn more, contact Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/planned-parenthood-orange-san-bernardino), Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/planned-parenthood-los-angeles), or the Community Action Fund of Planned Parenthood (http://www.ppactionca.org/local-info/orange-san-bernardino/).
