Medicaid provides health coverage and protections for persons with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities. NHeLP works with state health advocates and litigates when necessary to protect the rights of vulnerable persons, making sure persons with disabilities receive the care they need and are legally entitled to, as well as protecting their rights when care is denied, terminated or reduced without notice or a hearing.
The Kaiser Family Foundation website provides in-depth information on key health policy issues including Medicaid, Medicare, health reform, global health, HIV/AIDS, health insurance, the uninsured and much more.
The Affordable Care Act Toolkit for Self-Advocates was put together by the Autism Self Advocacy Network ( ASAN) to “equip self-advocates to participate in important conversations about our lives and the services we rely on.”
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) made it easier to get health insurance for all Americans, including people with disabilities. But a lot of the information out there about the ACA and attempts to repeal it can be difficult to understand and navigate. That’s why the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) released a plain language Affordable Care Act Toolkit for Self-Advocates, part of which was funded by the Special Hope Foundation.
