    Over 50 million people with disabilities live in the U.S. While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions have made advances in addressing their needs possible, challenges lie ahead.

    What do ACA reforms mean for Olmstead, the Supreme Court decision holding that disabled citizens have a right to live in the community? What provisions does the ACA contain to promote community living for persons with disabilities and where does implementation stand?

    How do we vindicate the rights of patients with disabilities to be informed of and make (or be supported in making) their own decisions, and what programs offer support? What are the experiences of disabled persons on the health care exchanges?

    Learn how stakeholders and government intend to address these challenges and whether the reforms will promote accessible health insurance and care, including Medicaid expansion.

    This program will also examine how the ACA affects seniors and individuals with disabilities, and how new products, mobile technologies, applications, and services can become life-changing solutions.
