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: April 22, 2019

Thanks to your hard work,  H.R. 1839, the Medicaid Services Investment and Accountability Act is now law.  This bill adds additional short-term funding to the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program to and extends the expiring spousal impoverishment protections for people receiving Home and Community Based Services through September 2019.  We will continue advocating for long-term funding for the MFP program through the EMPOWER Care Act.  Learn more about EMPOWER Care Act and how you can help here

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.
