Call Your House Member—Tell Them to Vote for Essential Medicaid Funding

The House of Representatives is expected to vote TODAY (May 27th) on $26 billion in additional Medicaid funding to prevent cuts in coverage during the current economic downturn. The money is included in the American Jobs, Closing Tax Loopholes and Preventing Outsourcing Act

This bill would extend through June of 2011 a temporary increase in federal Medicaid matching funds (called FMAP) that was included in the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This Medicaid increase is due to run out at the end of this year. As a result, many states are considering cutting Medicaid benefits and provider rates as they develop their 2011 budgets, which begin on July 1.
