Medicaid is the biggest health care program in the country. It’s an important part of the United States health care system. But a lot of the information out there about Medicaid and attempts to change it can be difficult to understand and navigate. That’s why ASAN is proud to announce the release of our plain language resource “A Self-Advocate’s Guide to Medicaid.” This resource was developed in collaboration with the Autism Services, Education, Resources and Training Collaborative (ASERT), and with funding from the Special Hope Foundation.
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.
