If you live outside of Texas, you still need to get involved! AHCA has set up a page where you can contact your lawmakers to tell them to protect Medicaid. This will not only have a huge impact on how the Medicaid Services are provided but also to those that depend it the most.
Long term care funding is more at risk than ever! The Senate is considering the Better Care Reconciliation Act and it contains devastatingcuts to Medicaid.
The Senate vote was delayed but Senators are evaluating this bill NOW. We need you to take immediate action and call your Members of Congress.Even if you have contacted them before, we need to ensure our voice is clear and consistent.
The specifics are jarring but put simply, this bill would cut Medicaid funding by over 20%. We need every Senator to know how bad this would be for providers and the vulnerable people they care for.
Please, click here to access the phone numbers of your Members of Congress and tell them that cutting Medicaid funding for America's most vulnerable citizens is unacceptable!
