ACTION ALERT! Stop the Senate from Dismantling Medicaid

Action Alert

The US Senate version of the American Healthcare Act (ACHA) is currently being created behind closed doors. 

Medicaid is in serious jeopardy.

The proposed bill would mean that states can decide who will receive Medicaid services and what services they will receive, and waitlists will grow exponentially. This is NOT acceptable.

We must take action NOW. This issue directly impacts our Duchenne community.

Once Medicaid is dismantled, there will be no turning back. We need your help!

ALL Republican Senators should be blanketed with calls and emails.

We only need a handful of Republican Senators to break with party lines and vote against this bill being negotiated behind closed doors.

One call or contact is not enough! 

Call them EVERY SINGLE DAY this week. Then after you call, email. Tweet. Post. #savemedicaid

Message

Please Protect Medicaid and Vote NO on ACHA

Dear [Decision Maker],

I strongly urge you vote against the Senate version of ACHA, it will dismantle Medicaid and will devastate those living with disabilities.

The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would decimate Medicaid -- it would lead to more than $800 billion in cuts over the next decade. In response states will have no choice but to reduce services, restrict eligibility, and increase waiting lists.



People with disabilities will be disproportionately harmed. The home and community based services (HCBS) on which people with disabilities rely are especially at risk because they are optional and could be completely eliminated.

Caps don't give states more flexibility. They just give states less money.

Please do not let the AHCA or any bill that caps or cuts Medicaid, cuts healthcare for people with disabilities, and does not protect people with pre-existing conditions go through the Senate on your watch.


Sincerely,
[Your Name]
