New York

New Yorkers with disabilities are at risk of loosing the services that enable them to live and participate in their community. 

New York stands to lose $57 billion in federal funding for Medicaid, CHIP, and financial assistance for marketplace coverage through the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA). Medicaid provides New Yorkers with disabilities  access to critical care that helps them live independently. 

If 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  Senator Gillibrand, Senator Schumer and Governor Cuomo, 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.)
