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 Why It Matters

Update: December 20, 2017

Today Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  We are of course disappointed that we were not ultimately able to stop this bill.  But because of your advocacy, many of the most harmful tax provisions for people with disabilities were not included in the final bill.  We remain concerned that Congress will next turn to cutting Medicaid, Medicare and other critical programs to pay for the tax bill.  But again, your efforts to educate members of Congress and the public about how important Medicaid is to people with disabilities will help us in the next fight.  Thank your hard work, and rest up for what's ahead.

You can get more information on the final bill here or in this chart of major provisions here.

Our Mission

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

Please contact us if you have questions, suggestions, or additional resources you'd like to see included.
