Join Governor Arne Carlson for a Medicaid Town Hall Thursday, July 13
In Minnesota, Medicaid is known as Medical Assistance (MA.) MA pays for many services including all of the Home and Community Based Waiver services which allow thousands of Minnesotans with brain injury and other disabilities to live as independently as possible. The health care bills moving through Congress make drastic changes to Medicaid and will result in far less Federal funding for Minnesota’s MA program.

Learn how proposed changes could affect you, your loved ones and your community at the Medicaid Townhall on Thursday, July 13 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m.

Join Jeff and Erica with the Public Policy Department along with citizen advocate, Deborah Bailey, who will be sharing her Medicaid story. Hope to see you there!
