The NDNRC is pleased to announce the publication of a new population specific fact sheet: “What to Know When Assisting a Consumer Who Has Experienced, or Is at Risk for, Blood Clots.” This fact sheet is intended to help Navigators identify what issues are unique to consumers who have experienced blood clots (also known as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism) so that they can assist them as they make decisions related to their healthcare coverage. This fact sheet can be found here. Special thanks to our NDNRC Friend organization, the National Blood Clot Alliance for their authorship of this fact sheet. Last year we released six population specific fact sheets and this fact sheet is the latest in that series which provides navigators and other enrollment specialists with information they need to help these specific populations within the disability community. The previous population specific fact sheets we released last year are as follows:
- What to Know When Assisting Children and Adults in the Autism Community
- What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with a Child with Special Health Care Needs
- What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Intellectual Disability
- What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Mental Illness
- What to Know When Assisting a Consumer with Multiple Sclerosis
- Information for Veterans Regarding Department of Veterans Affairs Healthcare
The entire list of fact sheets including our topical fact sheets is available here.
