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: December 16, 2017

Last night, a final bill was passed out of the conference committee.  The House has scheduled a final vote on Tuesday, and the Senate will follow shortly thereafter.  The final tax bill still has harmful provisions to people with disabilities and, even more concerning, still reduces revenue by over $1.4 trillion which Congress has said will be paid for with cuts to Medicaid, Medicare and other important programs.  Despite all our advocacy, all reports are that Congress has the votes to pass the bill.  Nonetheless, it is critical that Congress hear that we strongly oppose this bill and will fight any cuts to Medicaid and other programs to pay for it.  Please join in Monday's national disability call in day and Thunderclap.

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.
