From an article by Julia Day, MSW, Contributions from Bryon MacDonald, Disability Benefits 101 Information Services, California Work Incentives Initiative; World Institute on Disability, April 5, 2010 By 2014, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny anyone coverage because of a pre-existing condition, or to cancel coverage because of the onset of a new health condition. This will allow people with disabilities more access to private health coverage plans. The ban on lifetime coverage caps means that insurance companies cannot stop paying for treatment once they reach a certain dollar amount. Costly treatments for ongoing medical conditions such as cancer, AIDS, or diabetes will be protected from these coverage caps. This ban goes into effect before the end of 2010. Medicaid, which provides health care coverage to low-income people, will become more widely available. Since rates of unemployment and poverty are disproportionately high among people with disabilities, it is especially important to people with disabilities that Medicaid is accessible. In addition, people with disabilities will no longer have to go through such a complicated disability determination process to become eligible for Medicaid. The Medicaid Community First Choice (CFC) Option will give states the option to allow people with disabilities who are eligible for institutional care to choose community-based services instead. This will allow more people with disabilities who are on Medicaid to stay in their homes, instead of going into an institution. The CFC Option takes effect on October 1, 2011. Starting in 2012, the Community Living Assistance Services and Support Act (CLASS Act) provides for voluntary, self-funded, long-term care insurance through the workplace. This insurance will help pay for long-term care costs for people with disabilities. People with disabilities who participate will be able to start receiving cash benefits from this insurance after five years, and they will also be able to use their insurance to provide for their long-term care in the future. This program will make long-term inhome support services more affordable, and will help people with disabilities remain in their homes and communities. Register for the 2010 EMPLOYMENT Forums!
