Medicaid affects all of us: children and adults with disabilities, as we are age, as our family ages, and when the unexpected happens. UCP's annual report, The Case for Inclusion, ranks all 50 states and the District of Columbia (DC) on outcomes for Americans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD).
This year's report shows that:
- All states have room for some improvement, but some have consistently remained at the bottom of the rankings;
- Despite economic strains, many states have made real improvements in the quality of services being provided;
- There is still work to be done in ensuring that people with ID/DD can enjoy the same freedoms and quality of life as all Americans.
