Call Senator Durbin Today!Ask Durbin to Include a Moratorium in his Amendment
Due to the efforts of CWLA and other concerned parties, a moratorium that temporarily stops the harmful Medicaid Rehabilitative Services rule was signed into law.
This moratorium, however, needs to be extended, and a similar moratorium on the Medicaid case management and targeted case management (TCM) services (and school-based services rules) needs to be put in place so that vulnerable children and youth can continue to receive vital, legitimate Medicaid services.
There are only so many moving legislative "vehicles" that can carry such a moratorium. Senator Durbin (IL) is expected to offer a Medicaid rules amendment to the upcoming war supplemental.
Senator Durbin is home on break! Call Senator Durbin now and ask him to include in this amendment a moratorium on the rehabilitative, case management/TCM, and school-based services rules!

In any upcoming Medicaid amendment to the war supplemental, include a moratorium on the rehabilitative, case management/TCM, and school-based services rules.
Rehab and case management/TCM services are particularly important for vulnerable children and youth in our nation's child welfare and foster care systems.
The rules would place a practically impossible financial burden on states and localities in a time of great economic turbulence--thereby threatening the continuance of these services and the health and well-being of children and youth in the child welfare and foster care systems.
