Disability Community Urges HHS to limit cost sharing in Medicaid

The Arc joined with the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) to weigh in on proposed rules that address cost sharing in the Medicaid program, appeals processes, aspects of choosing the alternative benefit plan that will be offered to people who enroll in Medicaid as part of the expansion and guidance on the essential health benefits that must be included in the Medicaid alternative benefit plans. While there were numerous issues to comment on, CCD was very concerned about an issue that HHS raised that would allow cost-sharing for long term services and supports.   We urged HHS to not include this language in the final rule.  Read our comments at http://www.c-c-d.org/
