2019 Annual Report of the Long Term Services and Supports Task Force
The LTSS Task Force began 2019 by creating a large and overarching wish list of legislative priorities related to LTSS. The co-chairs have used this list in our advocacy with Congress all year. A top priority for the Task Force has been reauthorization of the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program. Although we have been advocating for a multi-year extension since MFP expired in December 2017, Congress has repeatedly passed short-term extensions, with the most recent extension through late May 2020. A bipartisan drug pricing bill introduced by Senate Finance Committee co-chairs Senators Grassley and Wyden in mid-December included permanent funding of MFP, and that will be the focus of our MFP advocacy in 2020.

Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson (GCHJ) Letter to Senate
The undersigned members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) write to express strong opposition to the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson (GCHJ) proposal. As we have commented on multiple proposals considered by the Senate, we cannot overstate the danger facing the millions of adults and children with disabilities if the proposal’s Medicaid provisions are adopted.

The undersigned members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) strongly oppose the revised Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). While we have serious concerns about many provisions of the BCRA, including a new provision that would dramatically increase costs for people with preexisting conditions, we cannot overstate the danger facing the millions of adults and children with disabilities if the bill’s Medicaid proposals are adopted by the Senate.

Statement: CCD opposed to the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act
The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) is strongly opposed to the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act. It is simply unconscionable to restructure and decimate Medicaid, which provides healthcare services and supports that maintain the health, function, independence, and well-being of 10 million enrollees with disabilities and their families. CCD is the largest coalition of national organizations working together to advocate for federal public policy that ensures the self-determination, independence, empowerment, integration, and inclusion of children and adults with disabilities in all aspects of society.

Protect the ACA’s Gains for People with Disabilities
Members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities strongly oppose repealing key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without simultaneously passing a replacement plan that maintains or improves existing coverage, access, and affordability. Unfortunately, the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House would abandon or undermine key enrollee protections, and if enacted would endanger millions of people with disabilities who have gained affordable coverage and access to needed services under the ACA.

Medicaid Per Capita Caps and Block Grants: Devastating for People with Disabilities
Capping the Medicaid program would be devastating to people with disabilities. Medicaid provides health care services and long-term services and supports that maintain the health, function, independence, and well-being of 10 million enrollees with disabilities and, often, their families. For many people with disabilities, being able to access timely needed care is a life or death matter. Block grants or per capita caps place arbitrary limits on federal support for Medicaid, limits unrelated to beneficiaries’ actual health care needs.

Statement of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities on Passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
Washington DC, May 4, 2017 - The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), the country’s largest coalition of national disability groups, is gravely concerned about the House of Representative’s passage of the American health Care Act. The AHCA will harm tens of millions in the United States, but especially people with disabilities who will face coverage loss, higher costs, and fewer options.

CCD responds to American Health Care Act Manager’s Amendment
The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities remains extremely concerned about the American Health Care Act. The Medicaid per capita caps in the original bill put home and community-based services (HCBS) for people with disabilities at serious risk of major cuts or even elimination, as the CBO noted. The recent manager’s amendment does not resolve these concerns, and in fact, likely exacerbates them.

For most people with disabilities, Medicaid is the only source of long-term services and supports.

The problem is clear: while our nation is aging and people are living longer with disabilities and chronic conditions, we lack a coherent plan on how to provide for their care and supports.
