Children’s hospitals achieved measurable success with the introduction of the ACE Kids Act of 2015 (Advancing Care for Exceptional Kids Act) in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. In order to achieve legislative success for children in Medicaid with complex medical conditions, direct interaction with members of Congress is essential for garnering additional support.
Use these materials to share out the good news of the bill introduction, communicate with your members of Congress and build support in your local community to encourage your representatives to cosponsor the ACE Kids Act and—once they have signed on—to thank them for their action.
