In addition to this excellent analysis CPPP has done on what it means if the ACA goes away, there is an optional HCBS program in Texas that will be eliminated:

Community First Choice Option (CFC) which provides HCBS to seniors and people with disabilities and Texas gets a 6% enhanced Medicaid match will go away;

One further point that is extremely important:

Every disabled person in Texas and the United States has a PRE EXISTING CONDITION!!!

It is not usually framed that way however:

Pre existing conditions IS A DISABILITY ISSUE!!!!

Every disabled person, family member and advocates should let Gov Abbott know how the Texas led lawsuit WILL HARM DISABLED AND SENIOR TEXANS.

E-mail Gov Abbott's health and human person

Heather Fleming and let her know how this lawsuit will harm people with disabilities and our families.  STOP THE LAWSUIT
