Tell Congress to Protect Medicaid for Millions of American Kids and Families
Medicaid Safe for Now, but Threats Ahead

Medicaid provides long-term care to millions of seniors, critical services that help Americans with disabilities live independently, and is a core part of the successful coverage of America's children. Unfortunately, the House passed a health bill that guts Medicaid by not only winding down the Medicaid expansion but also capping the core program, resulting in 14 million children, seniors, people with disabilities, and others losing health coverage via Medicaid (and 23 million losing health coverage overall).  While Senate action on health legislation is stalled, leaders in Congress may still try pass a bill that ends Medicaid as we know it. We must stop any partisan legislation that cuts or caps Medicaid or causes millions of Americans to lose their health insurance.

Take Action: Tell members of Congress to protect Medicaid from deep cuts or structural changes, and oppose any legislation that would end Medicaid as we know it. Medicaid must be off the table as Congress negotiates future health legislation. 

Take Action
  • Let your members of Congress know you are a constituent.
  • Say a little about yourself. Some ideas are: how long you have lived in the area and why the issue is important to you -- are you a teacher, a parent, a person who cares about children?
  • For more impact, create a custom letter by adding or changing text that makes your letter personal.
