White House Meeting on Health Reform

Advocates from the cross-disability community, including Ari Ne'eman, president of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, recently attended a meeting at the White House with health reform staffers to discuss the proposed inclusion of a Community First Choice Medicaid State Option in the final health reform legislation. The proposal, which is intended to lay the foundation for later enactment of the Community Choice Act, is widely supported in the cross-disability community.
