Disability Equity Measures: Collecting New Data to Address Disability Disparities in Health Care
Provisions for the collection, analysis, and dissemination of disparities data in the Affordable Care Act include- for the first time in a federal law- disability status. This session will discuss the ACA’s ground breaking inclusion of disability status and the opportunity it provides to generate comprehensive data to guide the design of programs, services, and structural reforms to reduce disability based disparities and increase the health and health care of people with disabilities.
