Iowans with disabilities are being heard loud and clear at the State Capitiol this year.  Legislators have introduced several bills to protect integrated health homes, require providers be paid better by MCOs, pull long term supports and services out of managed care, prevent insurers from switching medications on people who are doing well on them, and provide options for home delivered meals and home modification.  

These bills are getting a lot of attention, and subcommittees have already spent time working on several of these bills.  But time is running out.   Bills have to move out of committee before February 16, or they die for the year.   Only budget and tax bills are exempt from this deadline.  

There are a lot of things you can do to make sure your priorities get a good hearing at the Capitol.  

  1. Check out the Bill Tracker here - is there something there you want to see passed?
  2. Use social media to get your point across - use our new Action Center to tag your elected officials here.
  3. Call or email your legislators here.
  4. Use your smartphone to videotape your advocacy message and send it to your legislators. Click here for emails.
  5. Get a group togehter and host a Capitol Day.  ID Action has grants to help with that (click here for more info).
  6. Done all this? Then recruit others to do the same!
