Recent Congressional proposals for reducing our national debt have called for Medicaid to be converted into a block grant program. Through resolutions and advocacy efforts, the RA historically has opposed any efforts to transform entitlements into block grants. Consistent with this long-held position, the RA is alarmed by the deleterious consequences of the proposed block grant system. We are sending each of our members this packet of resources to assist you in crafting your response to this issue of critical importance.
