White House Staff Continue to Meet with People with Disabilities

High ranking White House staff continued to meet last week with individuals with disabilities and their family members to hear how critical the Medicaid program is to their lives. Staff of chapters of The Arc were prominently featured in two visits last week. Linda Guzman, Assistant Director of Operations at The Arc of North Carolina, and her son Javi went to the White House on Tuesday representing the American Association of People with Disabilities, and Carol Meredith, the executive director of The Arc of Arapahoe and Douglas in Colorado, was joined by her husband John and her son Alexander on Wednesday representing the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities. Linda wrote a blog post for The Arc about the experience, and Carol spoke about the difficulty with private insurance not paying for needed health care and the importance of Medicaid-funded services and supports.
