Medicaid is a lifesaver. Help us preserve the promise of Medicaid. Call your Senator today: 202-224-3121

Medicaid provides 219, 718 people with disabilities in Minnesota with access to critical care that helps them live independently.

To compensate for the cuts under Graham-Cassidy, Minnesota would have to raise taxes or cut other parts of its budget (like education)  to maintain its current medical assistance.

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. 

It is absolutely essential to make the case to your representatives Franken, Klobuchar, and Dayton, about the impact of the Medicaid per capita caps on community services and supports for individuals with disabilities.

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.

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.)

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.
