Drastic Cuts to the Medicare Savings Programs are part of the recently passed state budget.
The impact of these cuts will be devastating to those elderly and disabled individuals who will be eliminated from MSP.
68,000 individuals currently receive these services and could be impacted by these cuts which are effective on January 1, 2018.
Legislators need to hear the stories of people in their districts who will be hurt by these cuts!!
Stories from those who will be impacted are crucial!
Please call your legislators NOW and let them know that they need to find a way to fix this!
The legislature goes into session in February and we can’t ease up on getting this message out to them in the interim!
The more calls and emails the better!
Contact information for your state senator and your state representative is below.
I am also attaching a fact sheet about the MSP cuts as well as information about the number of individuals potentially impacted by this cut in the towns you work or live in. Please feel free to contact me for any additional information. Thank you.
