Let your Senators know how harmful this bill will be to Ohioans with disabilities. Please call your representatives and encourage your friends and family to join you. Let your representatives know that cuts to Medicaid put individuals with disabilities at risk of losing essential services that allow them to live and work in the community. This cannot happen. Help them understand the importance by sharing your personal story. 
 
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.
