ADAPT logoWhy you want to join us in Washington, DC with other disability rights and aging advocates at high noon on Wednesday, September 21st!

We are at a crossroads in Medicaid policy making direction and structural design of the program.

Though we have fought against the Medicaid institutional bias for years and other frustrating aspects of the program, we must admit it has provided a range of acute, rehabilitative, and home and community services that has allowed people to live productive lives in the community.

Medicaid as we know it is under attack.

It is absolutely clear that Medicaid will be one of the entitlements that will be put on the table for draconian cuts and possible block grants or universal caps when the newly appointed Congressional “Super Committee” begin their deliberations. Those deliberations must be completed by Thanksgiving or cuts will occur automatically.

The disability and aging communities must have their voices heard.

Disability, aging and human rights organizations are organizing the “Rally for Real Medicaid Reform” in Washington, DC on Wednesday, September 21st.

This will be an historic event in disability rights and aging history that you will want to be a part of. Critically, you must be there to protect this extraordinarily important program.

If you are not there, you will have no basis to complain in the future.

Join us and make a difference!

    surely would be nice were there no “means” test for Medicaid eligibility! Jus’ think how many music-school scholarships I could endow if every cent I have–and then some!–didn’t go to fund my PAS…*sigh*
