Event Details

At 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 8, the Kaiser Family Foundation will hold a policy forum examining the health care issues facing people with disabilities and the opportunities and challenges presented by the new health care reform law enacted earlier this year.  The discussion will explore the changes in health reform that could affect access to affordable health care for people with disabilities as well as the current and future role of the Medicare program in serving this population.

Panelists will include Jeffrey Crowley, senior advisor on disability policy at the White House; Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center; Elizabeth Priaulx, a senior disability legal specialist with the National Disability Rights Network; and Juliette Cubanski, study co-author and associate director of the Foundation’s Medicare Policy Project.  PBS Newshour co-anchor Judy Woodruff will moderate the discussion; and Tricia Neuman, Foundation vice president and director of the Medicare Policy Project, will provide opening remarks.

Breakfast and registration begin at 9 a.m.

The discussion in the Foundation's Washington, D.C. office is open to the public.
