Continued Threat to Medicaid
THIS IS REAL and THIS IS URGENT
Senators Cassidy and Graham introduced a bill last week to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This bill, like previous proposals, would make huge cuts to and place caps on the Medicaid program, end the Medicaid expansion and marketplace subsidies in the ACA, and allow states to waive consumer protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
Analysis indicates this bill would be devastating to people with disabilities and their families, women and children, seniors, and low-income Americans. And for the developmental disability community in particular, it threatens access to community living, employment opportunities, and educational supports. These services are available through home and community based waivers; they are also part of Medicaid and they are administered in Washington through the Developmental Disability Administration.
