If care about people with disabilities – if you or someone you love is supported by Medicaid, please take action NOW. People from Wisconsin with disabilities are at risk of loosing the services that enable them to live and participate in the community. 

Contact your two U.S. Senators and Congressional Representative and tell them cuts to Medicaid will hurt Wisconsin.

 Call (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Senators and Representative.

 

Talking Points and Questions to Ask

  • Cuts to Medicaid are a threat to over 1 million Wisconsinites. Two out of three people who use Medicaid in Wisconsin are children, older adults and people with disabilities.
  • Will I still be able to live in the community and use all of my current supports I need(like employment, personal care, medical equipment and transportation) if Congress cuts Medicaid?
  • In the past, Wisconsinites with disabilities had to wait decades (or died waiting) for community-based long-term care supports. If Congress cuts Medicaid, will waiting lists for Family Care and IRIS come back?
  • Wisconsin receives more than $60 million to fund school-based therapies. How will children with disabilities continue to receive necessary speech, occupational and physical therapy at school and in the clinic when Medicaid is cut?
  • Wisconsin already has a lack of providers in critical areas like personal care, dental care and mental health. How will big cuts to Medicaid funding fix these problems? How will providers be able to stay in business?

 

Medicaid provides funding for more than 20 programs. See the complete list.
