Action Alert: Medicaid Day of Action – March 16, 2017

Make your voice heard! On Thursday, March 16, 2017, the Autism Society will join with advocates across the country for a National Medicaid Call-in Day to raise awareness about proposed changes to Medicaid’s funding structure in the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The AHCA, the replacement bill for Obamacare, will cut an estimated $880 billion from the Medicaid program over a ten year period. The Autism Society recently expressed our opposition to the Medicaid provisions in the bill due to the devastating impact it could have on people with disabilities.

Without action, many of the Medicaid programs that benefit individuals and families affected by autism will cease to exist and wait lists will grow to unprecedented levels. Massive cuts to Medicaid will have disastrous effects on those who need help most. These cuts impact services and supports people with disabilities and their families rely on to be contributing members of society and live independent, and fulfilling lives. Take a stand tomorrow and let Congress know you will not watch while Medicaid goes by the wayside. Call your Member of Congress (202-224-3121) on Thursday, March 16 and tell them to oppose the proposed Medicaid cuts in the AHCA!

Now is the time to act. Together we can make a difference! Read more about what you can do.
