Your Voice Matters!

ACA Action Alert – CONTACT YOUR US SENATOR: On May 4, 2017 the United States House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) which is aimed to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The AHCA will remove protections afforded by ACA for pre-existing conditions ultimately making health care once again unaffordable for families of children, youth and individuals with disabilities. We encourage everyone to contact your United States Senator and share your story Today!  If you would like to learn more about AHCA click on the Public Policy tab. United States Senator contact information can be found at https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials.

URGENT! Action Alert from Arc Michigan

The following downloadable action alert is from Alan Bolter of the Michigan Association of Community Mental Health Boards. The language and information are relevant. It also suggests that, if the legislature does insist on pilots or demonstrations, they need to include certain protections for enrollees and adequate evaluation of the pilots. Please use as you see fit, but most of all continue your advocacy. Mental Health supports and services should remain under public authority, not privatized or “profitized”. Thank you, Dohn Hoyle, The Arc Michigan Director of Public Policy.
