Urge your Senator and the Senate Finance Committee to include the Community First Choice option in the committee health reform bill.   :)[capwiz:queue_id] 


Take Action!  


The Senate Finance Committee is about to begin final mark-up of their health reform bill.  It is critical that we take action now to get them to include a proposal which addresses Medicaid's institutional bias.  ADAPT, NCIL, the Arc, the Coalition for Community Integration and other advocates have developed a proposal for a state option that would give states an enhanced federal Medicaid match for providing attendant services and supports as an alternative to institutional placement.  This proposal is called the Community First Choice (CFC) option.  It is urgent that we contact our Senators and key Finance Committee leaders to ask them to support including the Community First Choice in the committee's health reform bill.
