New Threat to Medicaid with Graham-Cassidy Bill
What is Happening?
Senators Cassidy (R-LA) and Graham introduced a new bill last week to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. This bill would make huge cuts to the Medicaid program, end the Medicaid expansion and marketplace subsidies in the Affordable Care Act. It would also allow states to waive protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
This bill would be devastating to people with disabilities and their families and threaten access to community living, employment opportunities, and educational supports.
