LRI and S.L.E. Lupus Foundation Join 79 Groups Calling for Revision to Proposed Medicaid Rule

Kathleen Sebelius LRI and the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation were among 79 patient groups in the "I Am Essential" coalition delivering a letter to HHS Secretary today urging revisions to a proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that would give states the right to determine Medicaid coverage and fees for newly eligible beneficiaries. Our collective concern voiced in the letter is the potential for the proposed guidelines to jeopardize access to patient care.
