Jewish Family Service of San Diego is opposed to the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act in its current form. The draconian cuts to Medicaid will put lives at risk – including low-income pregnant women, children and older adults. Over 60 percent of nursing home spending in the U.S. is provided by Medicaid. Where are low-income Americans in need supposed to turn when private care and insurance are beyond their means?

We encourage you to voice your concern about the present form of this bill. Tag your Senators and make your post public.

About Jewish Family Service

Since 1918, Jewish Family Service of San Diego has been a trusted community resource for individuals and families working to build better lives. Operating throughout San Diego County and the Coachella Valley, the agency’s integrated services are focused around three goals: Empower Individuals & Families to Move Toward Self-Sufficiency, Support Aging With Dignity, and Foster Community Connection & Engagement. Many people first turn to Jewish Family Service with a specific need, such as job coaching or transportation, and that first contact often leads to a wide range of services, including counseling, education, nutritious meals, social connection, and more. JFS was named a 2016 California Nonprofit of the Year and has earned a ninth consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator that highlights the work of efficient, ethical and open charities.
