On Friday, a federal judge issued a decision in Texas v. United States, finding the Affordable Care Act to be unconstitutional. This decision could ultimately leave people with pre-existing conditions, like cystic fibrosis, without patient protections while also jeopardizing access to adequate, affordable health care coverage.
More than 200 advocates from 32 states traveled to Washington, D.C., on June 28 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's 10th annual Teen Advocacy Day, which enabled teens to meet with their elected officials on Capitol Hill to fight for access to high-quality, specialized care for their friends and loved ones living with CF.
Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump signed the Right to Try bill into law. The House approved the bill last week and the Senate passed it last summer.
The event, held at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, aimed to educate members of Congress on the impact of the proposed rule to expand short-term insurance plans on people with serious and chronic health conditions.
