NHeLP Letter to Congressional Leadership on HCBS and Coverage Gap

Executive Summary

As the Senate and House move forward on landmark Medicaid legislation, the National Health Law Program urges Congressional leaders to invest the resources necessary to meaningfully increase home and community-based services (HCBS) and to equitably close the Medicaid coverage gap. While we understand that at some points in the process there will inevitably be restrictions on committee expenditures and competing interests, we urge Congress not to shortchange either of these two racial, economic, and disability rights priorities, and ensure investments are robust enough to achieve systemic improvement.
