Description:

During the year of the 30th anniversary of the ADA, it is a time to reflect on the state of various rights and access for people with disabilities. Work on improving health care access and quality is particularly important because although great strides have been made, there is much progress to be made. This webinar features speakers from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) who will identify the efforts being made in CMS’ Office of Minority Health and Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office to provide information and resources to medical organizations, providers and consumers to increase health care access and quality of care for people with disabilities.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain the role of the Office of Minority Health and Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office within CMS and their work in health equity for people with disabilities.
  • Identify several resources for health care organizations, providers and consumers that provide information on health care access and quality for people with disabilities.
  • Explain the Disability Competent Care Model and how health care organizations and providers can use it to improve health care quality for people with disabilities.
