IHDPS DIRECTOR PUBLISHES CHAPTER IN REPORT BY NATIONAL COUNCIL ON DISABILITY
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
In this report, NCD reviews the research on outcomes since Olmstead, and finds that strong trends indicate that smaller, more dispersed and individualized community settings further integration and positive outcomes for individuals with disabilities. Specifically, greater individual choice, satisfaction, housing stability, and higher levels of adaptive behavior and community participation are associated with living in residential settings of smaller size. In the chapter, “Health Care Access for Working People with Disabilities: Medicaid Buy-in,” (pp. 31-41) written by Dr. Jean Hall, Medicaid Buy-In (MBI) programs are defined and discussed at length.
