Medicaid provides 482,522 people with disabilities in Illinois with access to critical care that helps them live independently.

If you care about people with disabilities – if you or someone you love is supported by Medicaid, please take action NOW

You matter, your story about Medicaid is critical, and your call makes a difference. 

Thank Senator Duckworth and Senator Durbin for their championship for people with disabilities and  ask them to continue to stand strong against cuts to Medicaid. Encourage Governor Rauner to commit to sending a loud message that the Medicaid per capita caps are unacceptable.

Call the main Capitol line at: (202) 224-3121 (You’ll be directed to an operator at the Capitol switchboard who can direct you to both of your senators.)

Share this with your family, friends, and community – particularly in target states – and ask them to join you in action.

Please, whether you’re a lifelong activist or haven’t voted in years – take five minutes today to help defend essential services for people with disabilities.

Key messages:
  • Do NOT support the Graham-Cassidy Bill.  
  • Do NOT allow Medicaid to be gutted.  Per Capita Caps would decimate the program on which people with disabilities and seniors rely for critical healthcare and community services.  
  • Do NOT allow states to opt out of requiring health plans to cover basic health care and keep it affordable for people with pre-existing conditions, including people with disabilities.
