UPDATE: Call Now to Protect Medicaid

Phone.jpgUPDATE: Keep those calls coming! You can also send an email.

Medicaid is a vital component of our country’s social safety net, providing health coverage to 60 million Americans, including low-income families, people with disabilities and the elderly. But current proposals in Congress to drastically cut Medicaid spending or block grant the program would tear a gaping hole in that social safety net and cause many Medicaid beneficiaries to lose their health coverage.

Join advocates nationwide for call-in days on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: Call 1-866-922-4970 and urge your Senators and Representative to oppose drastic cuts to and block granting of Medicaid.
