Proposed ACA Repeal Risks Health Care for LGBTQ People | Human Rights Campaign:

“The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was a health care milestone for the LGBTQ community. Section 1557 of the ACA, a groundbreaking non-discrimination provision has proven transformational for transgender and gender non-conforming people seeking health care.
