Medicaid is facing devastating cuts.  Act now to save it!

In the beginning of May, the House of Representatives narrowly passed a Medicaid and health care bill that will have a devastating impact on people with disabilities and their families. The bill included over $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid, and would open the door to repealing major health care protections like coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. You can learn more about this dangerous bill here.

The Senate is now debating similar legislation. Your Senators must understand the importance of Medicaid in the lives of people with disabilities and their families, so we can stop bad health care legislation for good. Senators are currently looking at placing caps on how much states can spend on Medicaid services. Experience shows that over time these caps would mean devastating cuts to services.

For the past 52 years, Medicaid has provided healthcare and long term services and supports to millions of adults and children with disabilities. These 10 million participants with disabilities and, often, their families, depend on the critical services that Medicaid provides for their health, functioning, independence, and wellbeing.
