CALL TO ACTION: Call Congress TODAY!

call-to-action

President Trump and the new Congress are moving quickly to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Major restructuring and cuts to Medicaid may not be far behind. This is your chance to tell Congress to protect these programs for seniors and people with disabilities.

Join thousands of aging and disability advocates in calling Congress on Tuesday, Jan. 31 and Wednesday, Feb. 1

These two call-in days are being sponsored by the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations. Here’s how to participate: 1. Call 866-426-2631 on Tuesday, Jan. 31 and Wednesday, Feb. 1 You will be asked to enter your five-digit zip code before being transferred to your members of Congress. 2. Tell your members:

  • Do not repeal the ACA without a simultaneous replacement package that provides equivalent or improved access to affordable, quality health coverage.
  • Preserve funding for ACA programs that keep seniors healthy and independent, such as falls prevention and chronic disease self-management under the Prevention and Public Health Fund and the Community First Choice home care program.
  • Do not restructure and cut Medicaid. Millions of seniors and people with disabilities depend on it for their health and long-term care.

After you make your call, please tell us how it went.

Thanks for your support!
