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: December 11, 2018

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the IMPROVE Act, (H.R. 7217), which includes a provision to renew the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program for three months, and extends spousal impoverishment protections to Medicaid HCBS participants. We expect a vote in the Senate will follow soon. By renewing MFP for three months, the IMPROVE Act gives the program a needed bridge into the new Congress in 2019, when we can advocate for a longer renewal. Thanks for your hard work! And act now to ask your Senators to vote YES to help people with disabilities live in the community! Learn more about MFP here

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.
