This is Our Chance to Reinstate FMAP into H.R. 4213!

Last week, Congress came closer than ever before to passing an extension of the enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) rates. But the FMAP provision was removed in a last-minute deal as the House voted to approve H.R. 4213. Now, as the bill moves to the Senate, we have another chance to put federal aid for Medicaid back into the bill – but it won’t happen without your vocal support.
With the midterm elections approaching, some legislators are growing wary about legislation that would add to the federal deficit. They need to know that their constituents support the FMAP extension – they need to hear from you.
The Senate will decide by Tuesday whether to reinstate the FMAP extension into H.R. 4213. Write your Senators a message today, and make sure they know how much this issue matters to your state!
Click the Take Action button to show your support for the FMAP extension, then forward this message to your friends and colleagues so they can do the same. Don’t wait – your vocal support is crucial for the FMAP extension to pass!
