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: May 2, 2019

On May 1, 2019, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a brief on behalf of the Trump Administration in the lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  DOJ for the first time argued that the entire ACA should be struck down, including the protections for people with pre-existing conditions, rather than just the “individual mandate” to have insurance.  Last month, a number of disability organizations, including CPR, filed a brief describing the importance of the ACA to people with disabilities. This case will likely be decided late this summer, and then head to the Supreme Court in the fall.  The ACA remains in effect during the lawsuit.

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.
