The Inflation Reduction Act will allow AA and NHPI families and elders to worry less about the high costs of insurance premiums and medication. For many, this means worrying less about choosing between paying for food or medicine. apiahf.org/press-release/api…

We thank @POTUS for signing into law the most significant health care legislation since the Affordable Care Act. The #InflationReductionAct is a huge win for all, and it will bring more affordable health care for millions of American families and seniors.

Today, HHS approves Hawaii, Maryland, and Ohio to expand Medicaid and CHIP coverage for 12 months after pregnancy. With a total of 21 states and D.C., this now means ~318K Americans have access to critical, lifesaving postpartum health coverage. bit.ly/3A7sHCq

The promise of this nation is real. The Inflation Reduction Act is not just about today, it's about tomorrow. It’s about showing that America – and American democracy – works. Not just for the privileged few. But for all of us.

The Inflation Reduction Act will begin to restore fairness to the tax code by making America’s largest, most profitable corporations pay their fair share.

No American should have to make a decision between putting food on the table and going to the doctor. The Inflation Reduction Act will lower health insurance costs for 13 million Americans covered under the Affordable Care Act.

I believe that every American has a right to the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to affordable, quality health care. The Inflation Reduction Act is a historic investment in that belief.

Read the results of the national survey on COVID-19 Vaccinations in the AANHPI community. NAPABA was proud to partner with @APIAHF and @NYU_CSAAH. Major findings: Vaccines are effective but misinformation persists. --> buff.ly/3cIISxX
