AAHD TO PRESENT ON CBPP BEYOND THE BASICS WEBINAR
As we announced a few weeks ago, we will be working again with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) again to provide technical assistance to navigators and other health insurance enrollment assisters. As part of this work, CBPP will once again be conducting its fall “Beyond the Basics” webinar series and they have announced the schedule for many of these webinars. For the full list of dates and times for the webinars as well as links to register, check out our news item.
We’ve recently updated that list to reflect that we will be presenting a webinar entitled “Best Practices When Assisting People with Disabilities Enroll in Health Coverage” on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 2:00 PM ET. In this webinar, we will address disability etiquette and basic accessibility considerations for anyone doing enrollment work, as well as provide an overview of questions a person with a disability needs to think about when considering their health care options in the marketplace.
If you missed it last week, be sure to check out our announcement that we will once again be partnering with Community Catalyst and other organizations in conducting outreach for Open Enrollment Year 7 (OE7).
Tennessee recently proposed an amendment to their Medicaid program which would drastically alter the way the program is set up. To read more about this proposal to understand what it means, check out the report from CBPP.

Are you looking for local partners to help with outreach to the disability community? The NDNRC has Community Outreach Collaboratives (COCs) which work to increase collaborations in the community, dissemination and outreach efforts and enrollment of people with disabilities in the ACA marketplace. You can find a COC, on the COC page of our website.
