A Call to Call-In Action!

Posted January 27, 2017 in blog in Events in Public Policy

Act Now to Preserve Health Care for Seniors and People with Disabilities

The Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) will hold call-in days Tuesday, January 31 and Wednesday, February 1. We hope NADSA members will participate by calling your Senators and House members to protect for the ACA, Medicaid and Medicare.

The new President and the new Congress are moving quickly to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and major cuts or restructuring to Medicaid and Medicare are lurking not be far behind. We must make our voices heard to let policymakers know that these changes will hurt seniors and people with disabilities.

The call-in number will be 866-426-2631. Please encourage as many as possible of your staff and clients to participate and promote the day on your email list and social media channels.   Those who call will hear a brief overview of the issues and will be asked to enter their zip code before being transferred to their members of Congress. (The zip code is necessary to correctly identify your representative before transferring your call.)

Below are talking points you might use for the calls but feel free to prepare your own.

No repeal of the ACA without simultaneous replacement   If Congress votes to repeal the ACA, a replacement package that provides equivalent or improved access to affordable, quality health coverage, including adult day services, must be included in the same legislation.

No cuts to and restructuring of Medicaid   Seniors and people with disabilities account for two-thirds of Medicaid spending. The program is the primary public source of funding for long-term services and supports. Program cuts, along with block grant or per capita cap proposals would harm people who have no alternative means of paying for essential services.

Preserve Medicare for current and future seniors and people with disabilities   Medicare is a huge success story, with strong support from all Americans. Premium support and other restructuring proposals to shift more costs onto beneficiaries would make health care far less affordable and accessible to seniors and people with disabilities.

There is power in numbers. If Congress hears from enough people they will listen. If they hear from few they will assume  few care.
