Don’t Cap My Care Medicaid Rally (D.C.) – June 6, 2017
Join Advocates, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Hon. Tony Coehlo, and other members of Congress on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, June 6, 2017, for a rally to Stop Medicaid Caps and Cuts and Save the Lives of People with Disabilities.
- The American Health Care Act (AHCA), if passed, will cut more than $800 billion from Medicaid over the next decade.
- “Per capita caps” will devastate Medicaid-funded services that people with disabilities need to live, work and participate in their communities.
- Medicaid provides specialized healthcare services like nursing, personal care and therapies to children and adults with disabilities and seniors.
The U.S. Senate is writing their health care bill now. We must let Senators know that MEDICAID MATTERS and MEDICAID CUTS and CAPS ARE UNACCEPTABLE! #NoCapsNoCuts #SaveMedicaid
This Rally is co-hosted and supported by:
