Efforts are moving ahead not only to repeal the Affordable Care Act - with or without a replacement - but to alter the Medicaid program for millions of people, including seniors and people with disabilities, by changing it from an "entitlement" program to block grants or "per capita caps."

A few particular fact sheets on impact on seniors and people with disabilities:
The Trump Administration has not changed the law on immigrant eligibility for Medicaid or other public benefits and has not changed the rules on when someone who receives Medicaid or other government benefits is considered a "public charge" or is at risk of removal or being denied admission to the U.S. However, a leaked draft of an Executive Order has raised some concerns. See this Fact Sheet by The Legal Aid Society about this draft of the Executive Order regarding "public charge."
