Join the Fight to Protect and Advance Medicaid

10 million Americans with disabilities rely on Medicaid for critical services that enable them to live and participate in the community.

Current Issues

Update: June 26, 2020

CPR has submitted comments in opposition to Oklahoma’s application to create a Medicaid expansion limited by work requirements, premiums, a per capita cap on federal Medicaid funding, and other harmful provisions, which is the first 1115 waiver application submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for approval using the Healthy Adult Opportunity (HAO) guidance. Approval of this proposal by CMS would set a dangerous precedent that undermines the goals of the Medicaid program.

Comments are due June 27, 2020 and can be submitted through online portals developed by the Arc or NHeLP (for individuals and for advocates) or through CMS’ website here.

You can find more information on CMS’ HAO guidance on our webpage and for more on what it would mean for disabled people, check out our fact sheet.
