What's going on with Medicaid? The impact of federal budget cuts on Latinas
Wednesday, July 20, 2011
RSVP below for call-in information
Grab a cup of your favorite coffee or tea and join us for some real talk about Medicaid and what proposed changes mean to you, your family and community. You will enjoy the discussion led by Rebecca Medina, Policy Analyst (NLIRH), and featuring guests:
Latinas and immigrant communities stand to lose the most in current Medicaid negotiations in Congress. Medicaid is the cornerstone of health care for low-income Americans; more than 58 million individuals are currently enrolled in Medicaid, including 13 million Latino adults and 9 million Latino children.
Slashes to Medicaid and CHIP program would not only impact those programs’ beneficiaries, but would financially destabilize already struggling service providers like community health centers, which are point of access for many Latinas and their families regardless of their insurance status of ability to pay.
