Feb 1, 2018 - EMPOWER Care Act
Contact Senators Booker & Menendez and urge them to support the EMPOWER Care Act - S. 2227.
This bipartisan bill improves and funds Money Follows the Person (MFP), which aims to keep aging adults and persons with I/DD in their homes with community based supports, rather than living in expensive institutions. MFP ended in Sept, 2016, and states are running out of money and scaling back programs. MFP saves states money, cutting almost 1 billion from Medicaid and Medicare spending.
