"This is not reform. This is an effort to strip away a program that serves the most vulnerable Mainers. Nationwide, Medicaid covers two-thirds of seniors in nursing homes, 39 percent of American children and more than 10 million people with disabilities. The fate of MaineCare — and the seniors, children and people with disabilities that rely on the program — is now in the hands of the Senate. We urge Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King to reject any bill that cuts or caps federal Medicaid spending." - Scott Morrison, vice president of Maine operations, Ascentria Care Alliance.

Today is #WorldRefugeeDay. World Refugee Day is an international observance day dedicated to raising awareness for refugees throughout the world. Each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes. People like you, people like me, people like your children. Over 24 people every minute leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror. They leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future. In a world where violence forces hundreds of families to flee each day, we believe that now is the time to show that we stand with refugees. #RefugeesWelcome #UnitedWeStand #UnaccompaniedRefugeeMinors www.ascentria.org/refugee-youth

The Senate is considering legislation that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The new bill may go beyond the ACA and include a proposal to change the structure and function of Medicaid.

If this becomes a reality, Medicaid would no longer be a guaranteed benefit available to seniors, children and people with disabilities that qualify, instead, it would be a fixed amount of dollars (a per capita cap) that would be used to pay for some services, for some of the people who are eligible for the program.

We oppose changing the structure and function of Medicaid because we oppose cutting benefits to the two-thirds of seniors in nursing homes, 39 percent of American children and over ten million people with disabilities who rely on the program.

We urge the Senate to reject any proposals to cut or cap Medicaid.
