Alzheimer's Association and Alzheimer's Impact Movement statement on the Graham-Cassidy Amendment
Across the country, millions of Americans living with Alzheimer's or other dementias rely on Medicaid services to access quality care. The Alzheimer's Association and Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM) are therefore troubled by elements of the proposed Graham-Cassidy Amendment and the impact it may have on this population.
The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
