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.

Act Now Why It Matters

Update: March 19, 2018

On Friday, Rep. Guthrie and Dingell introduced the EMPOWER Care Act in the House (H.R. 5306) as a companion to the bill in the Senate (S. 2227).  The EMPOWER Care Act would re-authorize the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program, which has expired.  MFP has helped more than 75 thousand people with disabilities and seniors move from nursing homes and other institutions to the community.  Call your members of Congress to ask them to cosponsor and pass the EMPOWER Care Act as part of the March 23rd budget. 


Our Mission

10 million people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live and participate in their communities. Over the past few months, Congress has attempted to pass several different healthcare bills, all of which proposed devastating cuts to Medicaid.  The fight is not over. Congress may try again to pass significant cuts to Medicaid, whether through another healthcare bill, in the budget, or in tax reform.  We need to continue to educate members of Congress 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 give them the tools to advocate. 

Please contact us if you have questions, suggestions, or additional resources you'd like to see included.
