Care Is Infrastructure

The American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and several state provider associations wrote to Leader Schumer, Leader McConnell, Speaker Pelosi, and Leader McCarthy to urge them to support the inclusion of provisions to strengthen Medicaid disability programs in the jobs and infrastructure package Congress is crafting in response to President Biden’s American Jobs Plan.

The letter states, “We appreciate the hard work Congress put into legislation over the past 13 months to ensure that disability programs can weather the pandemic. To ensure that these programs can come back stronger to meet increased demand after the pandemic, we encourage you to adopt policies that recognize that systems designed to deliver care are as essential as physical infrastructure when rebuilding this nation’s care economy.”
