What Medicare and Medicaid Cuts Mean on the Ground: A District-by-District Guide

Medicare and Medicaid are under attack.  

If the recent budget that was passed by U.S. House Republicans in April were to be enacted, it would mean radical changes to these key safety-net programs serving thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS.  

These changes could have a profound effect on the ability of Medicaid to provide health care coverage for the nearly 60 million Americans it currently covers, including seniors, people with disabilities, and children.  The budget could also have far-reaching effects for Medicare as some critics claim the Republican plan raises costs, reduces benefits, and enhances the role of private insurers.   

In order to assess the impact of this legislation, the Democratic Committee on Energy and Commerce created a district-level analysis for all 435 congressional districts, which includes information on seniors, individuals with disabilities, children, pregnant women, and others.
