July 14, 2016

Yesterday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act (H.R. 670) as part of a small legislative package to improve Medicaid! The package also includes Medicaid coverage of tobacco cessation services for mothers of newborns and limiting the use of federal Medicaid funds to cosmetic drugs except when medically necessary. Now, we must work together to get the package approved by the House and Senate for the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act to become law.
