Act Now Current Issues

Update: April 24, 2018

On Wednesday, April 25, 2018, the House Energy and Commerce Committee is planning to mark up a bill that would allow Medicaid funds to be used for inpatient services in psychiatric institutions called Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMDs). Although the bill is aimed at combating substance use disorders, it also would require states to fund unnecessary institutional care at the expense of expanding critical community-based mental health services.

Our Mission

10 million people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live and participate in their communities. Over the past few months,A�Congress has attempted to pass several different healthcare bills, all of which proposed devastating cuts to Medicaid. A�The fight is not over.A�Congress may try again to pass significant cuts to Medicaid, whether through another healthcare bill, in the budget, or in tax reform. A�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.A�
