Action Alert:Now is the time to let our Senators know about the potential impact of cuts to Medicaid in the American Health Care Act
The American Health Care Act (ACHA) proposes significant cuts to Medicaid. The proposed per capita caps and cuts will have serious consequences for individuals with disabilities and seniors. The Senate is currently writing the bill, so this is the time to communicate with our Senators to educate them about the potential impact and what it means to you personally.
BIAA is co-sponsoring a Don’t Cap My Care Rally on June 6th at 11:30 am with Senator Casey (PA), Senator Van Hollen (MD), Hon. Tony Coelho, and other members of Congress. The rally is at 1st St SE & Constitution, across from the Supreme Court.
This rally was organized on short notice, and we encourage you to attend if you’re in the DC area or able to travel there, but it’s not the only way for you to participate as a brain injury advocate on that day.
June 6 No Caps Call-in Day and Social Media Action:
June 6th will also be a national call-in day and day of social media action focused on opposing Medicaid caps. You can download the Day of Action toolkit, compiled by the Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities which BIAA is an active member of, with information about calling in and social media (primary hashtag #SaveMedicaid and secondary of #NoCutsNoCaps).
One more way to help: Share your story
Senator Casey, one of our senators from Pennsylvania, shared that his office is collecting stories of how individuals with disabilities lives have been improved because of Medicaid. If you would like to send your story to Senator Casey, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, thank you for your advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals with brain injury and their families. Your voice is important.
