AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM LEADINGAGE: TELL YOUR SENATORS TO STAND UP FOR MEDICAID

6/12/2017 - PARCR Admin

The Senate is scheduled to vote this month on health care reform that could end Medicaid as we know it by converting it to a per capita cap or block grant. Proposals under consideration would cut Medicaid by hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade.

Under this proposal, every state would lose federal funding, forcing states to cut back on services for seniors and people with disabilities covered by Medicaid as well as reimbursement to providers. LeadingAge strongly opposes these changes to Medicaid. We urge Congress to protect Medicaid and ensure that older adults have access to the essential long-term services and supports they need.

It is critical that your Senators hear from you now!
