Personal Stories

Update: July 18, 2018

Thanks to your efforts, a bill delaying Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for a year passed the Senate last night!  The bill passed the House on June 19, 2018. A delay will give advocates more time to address the significant concerns with EVV and its potential impact on people with disabilities.  We will keep you updated on next steps

Personal stories are the most effective form of advocacy. Talk about why is Medicaid important to you. 

  • If you or a family member are on Medicaid (including a waiver), what are the most important services to you? What difference has that made in yours and/or your family members lives?
    • Access to critical healthcare or therapies
    • Ability to receive in-home supports, residential supports or live independently
    • Ability to work or go to a day program (so your family can work)
  • What was your and/or your family members lives like before receiving Medicaid services?
  • Are you or a family member on a waitlist for Medicaid services? How would getting services make a difference in your lives?
