Push Congress to Support Medicaid Moratoria

May 12, 2008

This week the House of Representatives is expected to take up legislation providing supplemental funding for the current fiscal year for the military.  During consideration of this legislation, an amendment for additional emergency domestic spending (such as educational benefits veterans) will be considered. This amendment includes a moratorium on seven separate regulations that regulations that would severely hamper the ability of states to invest in services critical to the needs of people with serious mental illness.  Among these regulations are rules impacting services under the Rehabilitation Option and TCM.  It is critical that these devastating regulations be stopped.


Call or email your House member and urge support for the "domestic spending amendment" to the FY 2008 emergency supplemental funding bill and the moratoria on Medicaid regulations (HR 5613) that the House approved on April 23 by a wide bipartisan margin.  

You can reach House members by calling 202-224-3121 (not a toll free call).  Urge your House member to support the domestic spending amendment and the moratoria on the Medicaid regulations. Or, send an e-mail to your House member.
