Help Save Medicaid

Tell Congress to Oppose the Reduction and Elimination of Medicaid Services

Raleigh, NC, March 15, 2017

Did you know that one of every seven Medicaid enrollees is a person with a disability? Now, Congress is considering health care proposals that restrict access to critical Medicaid services -- services that our clients just can’t afford to lose.


That’s why we need your help today. Tell Congress to oppose any proposal to reduce or eliminate Medicaid services currently available to people with disabilities. It only takes a minute to send a message to your members of Congress through our system, and adding your voice to ours could make a big difference in the lives of so many.

At Easterseals UCP, we see the impact Medicaid has in the work we do everyday helping people live their lives to the fullest. Whether that means helping those with disabilities stay healthy and get the resources they need to live at home, or allowing parents to work outside the home for pay instead of being full-time caregivers, Medicaid is vital.

Take action now and tell Congress to oppose any reduction in Medicaid services!

We appreciate your support as we work together to change the way the world defines and views disability!
