In just two and a half weeks, uninsured Americans will be able to shop for coverage and access health insurance subsidies through the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance marketplaces. Already, many states have adopted or are preparing to adopt new Medicaid state options on expanding community services created by the ACA. Yet, as we grow closer and closer to the full implementation of the landmark health insurance law, many in the disability community are unfamiliar with how the Affordable Care Act will impact them. In addition, advocates looking to monitor and enhance implementation of the ACA for people with disabilities are frequently left without a clear and comprehensive description of opportunities and challenges yet to come under the ACA.

 

Thanks to the generous support of the Special Hope Foundation, ASAN has produced a new policy brief that aims to address these issues. Entitled The Affordable Care Act and the I/DD Community: An Overview of the Law and Advocacy Priorities Going Forward, this brief provides a summary of relevant provisions of the ACA and analyzes opportunities for advocates to enhance the impact of the law’s implementation for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide it as a tool for state and federal I/DD advocates looking to shape the law’s implementation.

ASAN would like to thank the Special Hope Foundation for supporting the development of this policy brief.
