Health Insurance Coverage and Health Care Disparities

CHRIL Presents...Health Insurance Coverage and Health Care Access Disparities

 June 13, 2018
3:00 - 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Please join us on Wednesday, June 13, for an important presentation from the Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living about Health Insurance Coverage and Health Care Access Disparities following implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2014. This webinar will discuss how the ACA affected health coverage, health care access, and health care costs for working age adults (18-64) with disabilities. The first part of the presentation will compare coverage, access and utilization trends for adults with and without disabilities. The second part of the presentation will use recent national survey data to explore continuing disparities in cost and utilization of health services. The final part of the presentation will identify emerging health policy issues like Medicaid Block Grants, Work Requirements, and changing regulations for private insurance, and how they may impact the lives of working-age adults with disabilities.
