ACT NOW - Legislative Alert!
Mar 23, 2017
Hello OT Activist,
AOTA has been closely tracking a bill in Congress, the
“America Health Care Act”, that is meant to repeal
and replace the Affordable Care Act. We have been concerned with
provisions in the bill that would restructure Medicaid payment to
states. However, new language being added to the bill today, would
potentially do away with mandated Medicaid benefits such as those
guaranteed to children under Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic,
and Treatment benefit (EPSDT). We are deeply concerned about these
changes that will most likely be incorporated into the bill before it
is voted on by the House tomorrow.
Please take action to protect Medicaid benefits for those most in need.
Write to your Members of Congress at "aota.org/takeaction"
ahead of the tomorrow’s vote and ask them to protect Medicaid
Please let us know if you have any questions.
