Children and adults with disabilities are at risk AGAIN!

"I depend on my wheelchair to live. It helps me work to provide a life for my family. A Medi-Cal cut will put me and my family at risk."

Medi-Cal is cutting reimbursement rates AGAIN for durable medical equipment (DME) used by people with complex medical conditions and disabilities such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, ALS, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida and more.

Even children with special health care needs who rely on this essential equipment are at risk. A recent report found:

22% waited more than a year for equipment and supplies
 
18% experienced delays resulting in longer hospital stays
 
38% had worsened health conditions because of this delay

"The State is planning to lower the Medi-Cal fee-for-service rates for certain DME items. Help us to ensure this cut does not happen!"

Preserve Access to Medical Products

The rate cuts apply to certain Medi-Cal covered DME items like canes, crutches, oxygen concentrators, wheelchairs, power mobility devices and more.

Protect People with Disabilities

These cuts will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable people with complex health conditions who need access to DME. 

Ensure Health & Safety

Help ensure children with special health care needs – and all Californians with disabilities – have access to the tools they need to not only live quality lives, but survive.
