Accessible, Affordable, Integrated Housing - Part 2: Forging Legal Alliances to Ensure Fair Housing Enforcement (1.25 hours)

About the Training

As officials in the states and federal government wrestle with budget deficits and growing healthcare costs, one growing response is to institute managed care plans for people with disabilities and seniors, including ones for people eligible for Medicaid and Medicare, the so-called “duals.”

There are concerns around managed care. But plans are coming and the alternative may simply be cutting services. It may not be enough to simply say “NO!” Disability rights activists, consumers, and Centers for Independent Living must be involved in the discussion.

In this critical series on managed care and the Independent Living Movement, you’ll hear from Bill Henning, Executive Director of the Boston CIL and Merrill Friedman, Chair of the Michigan SILC and Vice President for Advocacy at Amerigroup Corporation, a managed care organization. The discussion is moderated and rounded out by Suzanne Crisp, a nationally recognized presenter and expert on Medicaid and consumer directed services.
