Call the local and DC offices of your Representatives/Senators to urge them to protect  critical programs low-income older adults depend upon, including Medicare, Medicaid and Older Americans Act services. To find contact information for your Members of Congress, visit their websites, which you can find at: www.senate.gov and www.house.gov.

Reach out to your legislators during the September recess (Sept. 26-30).   Invite them to your adult day center to SEE the range of services your  agency coordinates. It will be easier to ask your legislators to  sustain the capacity of Medicaid HCBS and OAA programs once they  understand how your agency operates and the value of the services you
provide to their constituents.

 

Ask others to do the same! Urge colleagues, advisory board members, volunteers and clients to make calls and send emails to your agency’s House and Senate congressional
delegation.
