Top 10 Threats to People With Disabilities Under the Graham-Cassidy Bill

Executive Summary

The new Senate effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act and gut Medicaid funding, the Graham-Cassidy bill, poses threats to the health care of tens of millions of people living with disabilities. Senior Attorney Jennifer Lav explains how several provisions of the Graham-Cassidy bill threaten “to significantly reduce coverage for people with disabilities, violate their right to live in the community, and undermine decades of state and federal initiatives to rebalance Medicaid spending towards community-based care.” Lav concludes that like its predecessors, Graham-Cassidy “threatens to undermine hard-won battles for home and community-based supports and adequate health care coverage for everyone.”
