Statement regarding the future of Medicaid

As an organization committed to full inclusion for all people with disabilities, the ICI believes that Medicaid is a critical service for many of those we collaborate and work with. Changes currently proposed for the Medicaid program will significantly limit access to both medical care and long-term services and supports that are essential for a quality life in the community, particularly for those with the most significant disabilities.

Therefore, the ICI supports the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, the National Disability Rights Network, and the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities in opposing the changes to the Affordable Care Act proposed by House Republican leadership. Read their statement and learn more about what’s at stake for people with disabilities and those who support them.

Check out our latest publication, Ensuring Excellence in Community-Based Day Supports: A Guide for Service Providers and Staff. Written by ICI’s David Hoff and consultants Cori Di Biase and Genni Sasnett for the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services, this tool is a great resource for providers seeking to develop or enhance services to support community life engagement.

Under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), by April 1, 2016 states are required to submit a 4-year plan to the federal government on how the state will provide employment assistance to its citizens, including those with disabilities. ICI is tracking the status of each state’s plan, including its availability for public comment. The latest update can be found here. ICI has also just published a comprehensive guide that can help you in reviewing your state’s WIOA plan.
