The Arc Releases Analysis of the Affordable Care Act for Disability Advocates

Following the U.S. Supreme Court decision affirming the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), The Arc released a thorough analysis of the ACA and the benefits for individuals with disabilities. Numerous ACA provisions related to both acute care and long term services and supports hold great promise for improving the health and well-being of people with disabilities.

The report summarizes major provisions of the ACA and the status of the implementation. To complement the longer report, a one page summary is now available on The Arc’s website.

  1. People with disabilities don’t have it easy although many people think so. Disibility benefit payments are usually low, for those who have a disabiity and still work because they can’t afford to ‘retire’ often do without medical care and medications. It’s becoming more difficult to pay for housing needs, medical needs, utility costs and food. For me, I don’t see an end, I continue to work but still can’t afford the care I need.
