Medicaid provides 125,056 people with disabilities in Nevada with access to critical care that helps them live independently.
Cuts to Medicaid will disproportionately impact people with disabilities. In 2011, 56% of Nevada’s Medicaid spending went to people with disabilities and elderly people although they only accounted for 21% of enrolees. 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 Heller, Cortez Masto, and Sandoval, 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.

- 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.
