FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

5/23/2017
Washington, D.C.The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) President and CEO Mark Parkinson issued the following statement today regarding President Trump’s proposed budget for 2018:
 
“AHCA/NCAL continues to review President Trump’s FY 2018 comprehensive budget. As the budget process continues on Capitol Hill, it is critical that Congress takes steps to ensure Medicaid funding will meet the needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities.
 
“Drastic Medicaid cuts like those included in this budget would jeopardize access to care for the most vulnerable in our society. Protecting the frail and elderly is important both today and in the coming years when demand will dramatically increase.”
