Take Action to Stop the Repeal Effort Dead in its Tracks

JUL 21, 2017 | Justice in Aging


Given the high degree of uncertainty about what would happen during the amendment process once a bill is introduced, we need to stop that process from beginning. Today is a National Call-In Day to protect our care and save Medicaid. Ask your Senators to publicly commit to voting “no” on the motion to proceed and to start a new, bipartisan process to improve care for seniors.

  1. Call your Senators TODAY at 202-224-3121.

  2. Urge your Governor to publicly oppose any bill that strips coverage & cuts Medicaid. Find their numbers here.

  3. Tweet & post state-specific facts about how these bills harm older adults using our toolkit. Tag your lawmakers and local media. Use #VoteNo, #SaveMedicaid, #NoCutsNoCaps, #ProtectOurCare, #KilltheBill

These state-specific fact sheets for all 50 states will help you make your case. All of our analyses and resources on the possible changes to Medicaid and the ACA are available here.

CBO scores new repeal-and-delay bill, says it would increase uninsured by 32M

JUL 19, 2017 | Fierce Healthcare | Article by Leslie Small

Republicans’ latest iteration of a healthcare bill—now dubbed the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act of 2017—would increase the number of uninsured individuals by 32 million and double individual market premiums by 2026, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The just-released bill (PDF) is an updated version of the 2015 “repeal-and-delay” bill that congressional Republicans passed—and President Barack Obama vetoed. It emerged under a new name on Wednesday, followed in short order by a CBO score that closely mirrors the agency’s projections about the original bill.

Like its predecessor, the new GOP bill would be a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act, rolling back some of its core provisions—including Medicaid expansion, subsidies for individual marketplace plans and several of the law’s taxes—effective in 2020. That delay is meant to give Republicans time to come up with an ACA replacement.

Justice in Aging's Statement on Senate ACA Repeal Efforts

JUL 18, 2017 | Justice in Aging

Senate leadership has announced that they will no longer move forward with the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) of 2017. Instead, they seek to proceed to a vote to immediately repeal the Affordable Care Act, and delay replacement to a later date.

While we are relieved that the BCRA, and its unprecedented cuts to Medicaid, is off the table, repealing the ACA remains a terrible idea that would harm older adults—especially in the absence of a meaningful replacement bill.

Analysis of past ACA repeal bills showed over 30 million Americans losing health coverage over the next ten years, including 19 million currently covered through Medicaid expansion and 4.5 million adults age 55-64. Premiums would skyrocket as the tax credits that help seniors and people with disabilities purchase insurance would end.

Seniors would also face unaffordable costs. Should Congress or the Administration refuse to fund the cost-sharing reductions that lower deductibles and copayments for nearly 70% of marketplace consumers ages 50-64, their out-of-pocket costs alone could rise by up to $4,500.

Under repeal, critical ACA funding that helps adults age 65 and older and people with disabilities stay in their homes would end. Repealing the Community First Choice program would result in $19 billion in cuts to Medicaid in-home care.

Further, repealing the ACA would decrease Medicare revenues and shorten the life of the Medicare Trust Fund, putting health care for generations of older adults in jeopardy.

It’s time for lawmakers to stop trying to take health care away from people and instead work together in a bipartisan way to lower costs and improve care for everyone, as promised.

Major Threat: How the Better Care Reconciliation Act Jeopardizes Medicaid Home- and Community-Based Services

JUL 14, 2017 | AARP Public Policy Health Care Update | Insight on the Issues

The Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) puts Medicaid home- and community-based services (HCBS) on the chopping block. The proposed demonstration program for Medicaid HCBS, included in the revised version of the Senate Bill on July 13, does not change the big picture. According to new analysis from the AARP Public Policy Institute, states may cut Medicaid HCBS by as much as $46 billion in 2026 to stay within their allotted per capita caps-- a 22 percent cut. Read the new Insight on the Issues to learn more and find out the potential impact on your state.

New Issue Brief: Proposed Medicaid Cuts Threaten Medicare Savings Programs

JUL 10, 2017 | Justice in Aging Health Network Alert | Issue Brief

For low-income older adults who are eligible for Medicare but can’t afford the premiums, co-pays, and deductibles, Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) have been a lifeline--making it possible for millions to get Medicare-covered care. However, the huge cuts to Medicaid that both the House and Senate ACA-repeal plans propose could cause states to limit participation in the program, causing many to be priced out and lose access to care. MSPs currently reach over 7 million people with Medicare. Many are too poor to afford Medicare but do not qualify for other Medicaid programs. This issue brief discusses how the program is structured and administered and outlines how cuts in Medicaid could force cuts to the program.

Understanding the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA): Key Implications for Medicaid

JUN 28, 2017 | Jocelyn Guyer, April Grady, and Kevin McAvey, Manatt Health
Analysis | BCRA State-by-State Chartbook Cover Memo

Senate leadership has released a proposed substitute for the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA) known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA) that eliminates enhanced funding for Medicaid expansion after a three-year phase out, establishes a cap on federal Medicaid funding for nearly all beneficiaries and services, and makes a number of other changes to Medicaid. Using the Manatt Medicaid Financing Model, this analysis estimates the state-by-state impact of the cap on Medicaid and elimination of enhanced funding for expansion, taking into account that states may respond to the proposed law in a number of different ways. Manatt has also provided a cover memo to explain the data and assumptions.

Donations for National Level Advocacy Needed Now!

JUN 30, 2017 | Lisa Peters-Beumer, Chair | National Adult Day Services Association/NADSA

With the White House and Congressional members working on reversing 50 years of health policy and safety net programs, it is more important than ever that we work together to protect and advance the mission of Adult Day Services (ADS). The U.S. House has already voted to cut Medicaid funding by 33% over the next decade by forcing states to pick up more of the cost of Medicaid services. The Senate is working on its version of “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid is a target.

Deep funding threats to Medicaid and other entitlement programs for our most vulnerable populations are real and deeply concerning.

That is why NADSA has launched an Advocacy/Public Policy Initiative to raise funds needed to increase our visibility in Congress and the Executive Branch, strengthen our voice on national policy issues, and support Adult Day Services providers in serving clients and families. The most important thing we can do together is to support advocacy that none of us can do alone.

NADSA’s Advocacy/Public Policy initiative has five main objectives:

  • Support NADSA’s legislative presence with Congress and the Executive Branch to fight deep Medicaid funding cuts and advance the expansion of Adult Day Services as a Medicare benefit;
  • Ensure that NADSA has strong visibility on the national stage with organizations that impact ADS and participants and families;
  • Help NADSA work with state associations to strengthen ADS advocacy in communities across the United States;
  • Support the creation and dissemination of ADS advocacy materials and tools for NADSA members and to strengthen ongoing communications on policy issues; and
  • Strengthen and enhance NADSA’s annual Policy Event in Washington D.C.

While it is an uncertain time for health-related issues, there are also opportunities to make a difference. Nearly 50 advocates joined us for our annual Public Policy Event in Washington D.C. this May and were well-received by members of Congress. Our work on gaining support for Veteran’s services is realizing success. We have momentum in our favor but the threat of deep funding cuts are all too real.

There has never been a greater need for NADSA to invest in building its public policy and advocacy capacity.

To do this, we need your financial support. We need resources beyond what dues provide to ensure that current Medicaid funding is protected from deep cuts, and, also to achieve our goal of ADS as a Medicare benefit.

Now is the time to act. Any donation amount is appreciated.

Please go on-line to and contribute. We will acknowledge your contribution on the NADSA website and continue to keep you apprised of our work protecting and championing ADS.

Cuts to SSI in Trump Budget Push Older Adults into Poverty

JUN 21, 2017 | Justice in Aging Income Network Alert | Issue Brief

Trump’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget aims to cut nearly $1 billion per year from SSI recipients’ benefits by creating a sliding scale for multi-recipient SSI families.

This is terrible policy. Our new issue brief Cuts to Multi-Recipient Households Push Older Adults & Their Families Deeper into Poverty outlines who’s most affected and discusses how these cuts would discourage families with older adults and people with disabilities from helping one another out by sharing their homes. The cuts would push already poor families deeper into poverty, force people onto the streets or into institutions, and result in costly administrative burdens for the Social Security Administration (SSA).
