The Arc Action Alert: Tell Us Your Medicaid Story!
Tell Us Your Medicaid Story!
One in 5 Americans gets their health care through Medicaid, including children and adults with disabilities, working families, and seniors.
For most people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), Medicaid is not only their primary health insurance - it also provides the only source of funds for them to live and work in the community with friends and families and avoid harmful, costly and segregated nursing homes or institutions.
Unfortunately, some in Congress and the President are talking about cutting Medicaid. Now is the time to share your story to let them know why Medicaid is vital to you, and what would happen if your Medicaid services were cut.
Medicaid has different names in different states, because it is it a partnership between the federal government and the states.
You are getting Medicaid if you get "waiver" services.
Not sure if you get Medicaid? Look up your state's Medicaid program name(s).
