Medicaid: The Impact of Proposed Changes

In the beginning of May, the House of Representatives narrowly passed a Medicaid and health care bill that would have a devastating impact on people with disabilities and their families. The bill included over $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid, and would open the door to repealing major health care protections like coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.


The Senate is now debating similar legislation. We, at LARC, believe an engaged public is the best option to assure services are accessible for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families and want to provide you with resources to help you stay informed and take action.


Our elected officials must understand the importance of Medicaid in the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

Your voice is important and needs to be heard.  We are communicating our concerns to our elected officials and encourage you to do the same.
