What is going on with Medicaid?
There is a push at both the state and local levels to make big cuts to the Medicaid program.
Why does My Medicaid Matter?
Medicaid provides health care and long term care services to over 4 million children, pregnant women, and adults with disabilities in Texas. Medicaid is critical to everyone receiving SSI and most people in group homes or receiving home health services.
What can I do about it?
The most effective action is direct contact with elected officials – like your representative in the Texas Legislature or Congress - about the importance of Medicaid. ARCIL can help you find contact information.
Also, check out the attached, My Medicaid Matters brochure. You can contact the My Medicaid Matters coalition, or other advocate groups, and tell them why Medicaid is important to you and learn about the My Medicaid Matters team in your area.
