HELP SAVE MEDICAID! CONTACT LEGISLATIVE LEADERS TODAY!
We are seeing real progress on restoration of the two big Medicaid cuts made last fall — to the Medicare Savings Program and HUSKY A, and momentum is building!
The current situation
The latest Republican budget now provides for full MSP restoration. The Democrats did not commit to full MSP restoration in their proposed budget. And neither budget restores the cut to 13,000 plus HUSKY A enrollees effective January 1st.
But in this article, “sources say the two sides remained bogged Thursday over several issues including: transportation, public colleges and universities, the Husky health insurance program for poor adults; and state aid to school districts.”
This is promising, but we need calls to leadership of both Houses today!
