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: March 7, 2019

New versions of the EMPOWER Care Act extending the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program for five years were introduced in February in the House (H.R. 1342) and Senate (S. 548). Thanks for participating in yesterday's National Call-In Day for Community Living to fund MFP. You can still call to ask your members of Congress to become co-sponsors and support these bills to help people with disabilities get out of institutions and live in the community!

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.
