Congress Is Voting TODAY to Change Medicaid! – Call or Email Your Congressional Representative Today
Congress is on the fast track to repeal major portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and to make drastic cuts to the Medicaid program. The level of cuts over time would decimate the Medicaid program. When will this happen? IT IS HAPPENING TODAY. The House of Representatives is voting today on a bill to change the way Medicaid services are funded in Pennsylvania.
People’s health, services and lives are at stake! We urgently need advocates, family members, and self-advocates to reach out to their Senators and Representatives and tell them to stop the repeal of the ACA and the cuts to Medicaid. Advocates need to explain why the ACA and Medicaid are essential to people with disabilities and their families. Share your personal stories about how Medicaid services have helped you to access health care, treatment, and services to remain at home. Share how Home and Community Based Services have helped you to remain independent.
