Medicaid is under attack from all directions. From the proposal to impose cap Medicaid funding in American Healthcare Act (AHCA) and the drastic cuts proposed to Medicaid in the Trump Administration’s budget proposal, the threats to Medicaid are widespread. For older adults, Medicaid is a lifeline that ensures access to critical medical care and long-term services and supports. Slashing Medicaid would impact the entire health care system, including for those who have Medicare.
This webinar, Medicaid, the AHCA and Older Adults, provides a summary of how the Medicaid cuts and caps in the AHCA would impact low-income older adults, including how they would affect seniors who rely on Medicaid and Medicare. We also discuss the other potentially harmful impacts of the AHCA for older adults. Finally, we provide an update on the Trump Administration’s budget proposal and what it could mean for Medicaid.
