July 12, 2011: Protect Medicaid

July 12, 2011: Protect Medicaid

As part of the Congressional debt and deficit negotiations, Medicaid--which provides healthcare for millions of children, people with disabilities, seniors and the poor-- could be capped or restructured to limit coverage.  Two proposals, a funding cap or block grant, are being discussed.  Either proposal would decrease resources for Medicaid and force states, which administer the program, to either decrease healthcare services offered or limit program eligibility. This will mean severe consequences not only for the millions of individuals reliant on Medicaid for healthcare, but for our communities.

Protecting this effective and important program will require a local effort across the country. Take action to tell Congress to protect Medicaid.
