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: November 16, 2017

Today the House voted and passed their tax bill. The Senate is expected to vote shortly after Thanksgiving. If the Senate bill passes there will be a conference negotiation between the two chambers over the final legislation. Both bills still include massive tax cuts for corporations and wealthy individuals - dramatically reducing revenue and leaving Medicaid vulnerable to cuts and caps and causing automatic cuts to Medicare. Both bills contain tax provisions that hurt people with disabilities. And now the Senate has added repeal of part of the Affordable Care Act, causing the loss of insurance by millions and increases in premiums.

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.
