#IamMedicaidIowa Join Us!

Many lawmakers and citizens see dollar signs rather than faces when considering Medicaid Managed Care issues in Iowa. Help Disability Rights Iowa show lawmakers that Iowans in the Medicaid Managed Care system are just like them. They want to live in their homes in their communities rather than going to an institution. However, they can’t do so without the state sufficiently funding their services.

DRI wants Iowa lawmakers to see faces, not just numbers. We will be sharing your photos and stories with legislators during the 2018 session. Join the #IamMedicaidIowa movement and share your story.  

Get involved:

  1. Print the #IamMedicaidIowa Instructions and Printable Sign and have your picture taken holding the sign.
  2. Copy and paste the prepared statement listed below that most closely resembles your relation to Medicaid into an email. Attach your picture and if you choose, please share your own story regarding Medicaid. Send everything to IamMedicaid@driowa.org.
  3. Post the picture and statement on all your social media accounts and encourage others to join! Don’t forget to tag DRI on Facebook at @disabilityrightsiowa.org. Share this document with others and ask them to join the campaign.

Prepared statements:

#IamMedicaidIowa.  Many lawmakers and citizens see dollar signs rather than my face.  Just like you, I want to live in my home in my community, but I need the state to sufficiently fund my services.  Please remember my face as you make decisions about Medicaid Managed Care.

#IamMedicaidIowa. Many lawmakers and citizens see dollar signs rather than my face. I am a caregiver for a loved one who wants to live at home in the community rather than going to an institution. However, my loved one needs the state to sufficiently fund their services.  Please remember my face and my family as you make decisions about Medicaid Managed Care.

#IamMedicaidIowa. I am a Medicaid provider and my clients want to remain in their homes in their communities rather than going to an institution. However, my clients need the state to sufficiently fund their services. Please remember my face and my clients as you make decisions about Medicaid Managed Care.

#IamMedicaidIowa. I am an Iowa taxpayer and I want my tax dollars to support my friends and neighbors staying in their homes and communities rather than going to an institution. However, my community members need the state to sufficiently fund their services. Please remember my face and my friends and neighbors as you make decisions about Medicaid Managed Care.
