NDNRC RELEASES TWO NEW FACT SHEETS
The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) is pleased to announce the publication of two new fact sheets for the National Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative (NDNRC). “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Multiple Sclerosis” and “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Intellectual Disability” are intended to help Navigators identify what issues are unique to consumers with those conditions so that they can assist them as they make decisions related to their healthcare coverage. “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Multiple Sclerosis” can be found here. Special thanks to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for their authorship of this fact sheet. “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Intellectual Disability” can be found here. Special thanks to The Arc for their authorship of that fact sheet.
These fact sheets are the latest in a series of new fact sheets that the NDNRC is releasing which provide navigators and other enrollment specialists with information they need to help these specific populations within the disability community.
In case you missed it last week, we released one of these population specific fact sheets on Autism Spectrum Disorder. “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Autism Spectrum Disorder” can be found here. In addition in Year One we already released a fact sheet on Veterans and that fact sheet can be found here. In the coming weeks, we will also be releasing fact sheets on assisting consumers with mental illness, paralysis and a child with special health care needs. The entire list of fact sheets, including our topical fact sheets, can be found here.
Are you looking for local partners to help with outreach to the disability community? The NDNRC has funded eleven Community Outreach Collaboratives (COCs) for the second year of enrollment. The COCs will increase collaborations in the community, dissemination and outreach efforts and enrollment of people with disabilities in the ACA. To find a COC, click here.
