November 2014 – Natonal Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative (NDNRC) iReceives Year 2 Funding and Will Focus on community Outreach
The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) is pleased to announce the National Disability Navigator Resource Collaborative (NDNRC) has received funding for a second year. The NDNRC is an initiative aimed at providing cross-disability information and support to Navigators and other enrollment specialists thereby ensuring people with disabilities receive accurate information when selecting, enrolling and/or reenrolling in insurance through the Affordable Care Act Marketplaces. The NDNRC website can be found at: http://www.nationaldisabilitynavigator.org/.
A major focus of Year Two will be to engage in dissemination and outreach activities to assist enrollment. This engagement will include Community Outreach Collaborations (COCs) that will increase collaborations in the community, dissemination and outreach efforts and enrollment of people with disabilities in the ACA. The COCs will have two primary tasks: 1) build cross-disability collaborations with other disability organizations; and 2) have the cross-disability collaboration work as a dissemination and outreach resource with their local and/or state navigators and assisters. The 11 COCs represent 11 different states and are located in 9 of the 10 HHS regions. To find out where the COCs are located, click here.
