Join the Fight to Protect Medicaid

10 million Americans with disabilities are at risk of losing the services that enable them to live and participate in the community.

Update: February 14, 2020

Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia unanimously upheld the decision reached by a federal district court last year overturning HHS’ approval of Arkansas’ Medicaid waiver, that, among other things, imposed work requirements. The court found that approval of the waiver violated the Administrative Procedure Act because HHS did not consider how the waiver would further “the principal objective of Medicaid,” providing access to healthcare.

Our Mission

10 million people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live and participate in their communities. Over the past year, Congress attempted, and failed, to pass several different healthcare bills with devastating cuts to Medicaid.  But the fight is not over. Congress may try again to pass significant cuts to Medicaid, whether through the budget or in another healthcare or tax bill.  Federal agencies are also proposing policies that hurt people with disabilities who rely on Medicaid.  We need to continue to educate government leaders about the importance of Medicaid to the lives of people with disabilities.

Our purpose on this website is to help people with disabilities, their families, and advocates/allies understand the impact of the changes proposed by Congress and federal agencies and give them the tools to advocate.
