Medicaid Sign-On Letter

Families USA, along with over 120 organizations representing consumers, patients and providers, sent a letter to all Senators asking them to reject Affordable Care Act repeal proposals that threaten the health coverage and care of the 74 million vulnerable children, seniors, women, people with disabilities, working adults and others who rely on Medicaid.

This letter specifically opposes legislative efforts to cut Medicaid funding through per capita caps and block grants, as well as efforts to end the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid.
