2015 MN-CCD Public Policy Campaign

In 2015, the MN-CCD will work to increase the Medical Assistance (MA) Income Standard, raise the asset limits and reduce spenddowns, so that people with disabilities and older adults can keep more of their income to live independently in the community. To sign on to the campaign, to learn about telling your story or for information about how to help a person that is affected by the MA Income Standards tell their story, visit the Medical Assistance Campaign web page.
