Medicaid

 

Medicaid is the nation's primary way of financing and delivering community-based health and long-term services to children and adults with disabilities.  It is the nation's largest health care program, and serves nearly 60 million low-income Americans, including an estimated 9.9 million people with disabilities.  AUCD advocates for the maintenance of the individual entitlement to a full range of Medicaid health and long-term supports and services for all eligible children and adults with disabilities.
