Urge Congress to Save the Community First Choice Option and other Provisions of the Affordable Care Act!
The Community First Choice Option (CFCO) was the result of decades of advocacy by the Disability Community! A stand-alone program passed along with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), CFCO enables many people with disabilities to live in the community. Proposals to repeal the ACA have eliminated CFCO without any discussion. Repeal of the ACA, would also eliminate accessibility standards for Medical Diagnostic Equipment and insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
