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: January 25, 2019

Today, thanks to advocates like you, H.R. 259, the Medicaid Extenders Act, the short-term Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program and spousal impoverishment protections extension bill, was signed into law.  The Act provides three months of MFP funding (states have until Sept 31, 2019 to spend it) and extends the HCBS Medicaid spousal impoverishment protections until March 31, 2019.  We’ll keep working for a longer extension, since it's only short-term, but for now, we celebrate the victory and thank you for your hard work!

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.
