DRW Opposes Proposed Federal Effort to Relax Rule Aimed at Assuring Access to Medicaid services

Wisconsin state capitol during the daytime.

As a disability advocacy organization, we are particularly concerned about how the proposed changes to the Access Rule at 42 CFR 447.203-204 would impact access to needed care for the thousands of people with disabilities who are covered by Medicaid in Wisconsin. We firmly believe that any source of health coverage must ensure access to timely, affordable and high-quality health care that meets the specific
needs of people with disabilities; Medicaid is no exception. We urge CMS to withdraw the proposed changes.
