88 million people in the U.S. rely on Medicaid for their health care, including 54 million older adults, children, and people with disabilities. We can’t afford to make cuts to care, and we’re fighting hard to protect Medicaid. Join Disability Advocates across the nation for a Save Medicaid Online Rally on Wednesday, May 24 at 4:30 pm ET. We’ll be joined by Members of Congress, care advocates, and grassroots activists from around the country. We know that Medicaid has overwhelming support among people like you – because families depend on this lifesaving source of care. Taking Medicaid away from people by imposing Medicaid work requirements would harm millions of people, including those who are sick or have a disability, veterans, and older adults. Join our Save Medicaid Online Rally for insider information directly from Congress about the fight over Medicaid and the debt ceiling. We hope we see you there!

The Marriage Penalty

Self-Advocate Diana Stolfo continues her tireless work to eliminate the marriage penalty. Diana and her fiancé Matt met at The Arc's CHILD Center when they were just infants. They want to marry but cannot because they will lose vital benefits. For Diana and Matt and others with all types of disabilities marriage can mean losing their care, their home and not having enough money to repair their wheelchair. H.R.6405 - the Marriage Equality for Disabled Adults Act would eliminate some of these barriers.  Diana tells her story in the first video and couples from around NJ gather for a commitment ceremony to shine a light on the issue in the second video.

Medicaid Unwinding

The Omnibus spending bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden on December 29, 2022 requires that Medicaid resume eligibility processing as of April 1, 2023. This means that the COVID protections that prevented Medicaid terminations will no longer be in place. Medicaid recipients will start receiving redetermination packets to determine eligibility and must respond.
