Tell Congress: Help Promote Independence and Community Services
The 1999 Supreme Court Olmstead decision promoted independence and community integration by holding that individuals with disabilities have a right to receive their state-funded services in the community rather in an institution. 

Medicaid’s Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program is helping to realize the goal of the Olmstead decision by helping states rebalance their long-term care systems to include more home and community-based services, a cost-effective and consumer-preferred alternative. More than 75,000 individuals with disabilities and older adults are now receiving home and community-based supports rather than institutional care, as a result of the MFP Program. 

The House recently approved a multi-year
 MFP extension. Tell your Senators to act quickly to extend this important program.
