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 Current Issues

Update: September 17, 2018

Thanks to your work, the EMPOWER Care Act, H.R. 5306, a bill funding Money Follows the Person (MFP) passed out of the House Energy & Commerce committee last week! This is another key step toward helping people living in nursing facilities and other institutional settings move back into their community! The current House bill reauthorizes the program for a year. One year is better than none, but we will continue to advocate for a longer time.  Support MFP by educating your members of Congress about the importance of MFP and the need for it to be reauthorized immediately. You can call the main Capitol line at: (202) 224-3121 (voice) or (202) 224-3091 (TTY).

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.

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