Calling all health care advocates! New tool to help shape your state’s Essential Health Benefit plan

| July 26, 2012

Calling all affordable health care advocates! Are you prepared to help decision-makers develop your state’s policies under the new health care law?

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled the Affordable Care Act constitutional, the hard work for us really begins. Essential Health Benefit packages are being designed state by state, and we must ensure a minimum standard of care that includes coverage for people living with HIV and AIDS. It is vital that consumer advocates get in on the ground floor to ensure Essential Health Benefits set a high benchmark for care.

Families USA has created a fantastic guide to help you understand and advocate for a comprehensive Essential Health Benefit plan in your state.

The chart below is a great graphic that helps explain the process. Many more tools are included in this guide.

 Download the PDF here and lead the charge in your home state!

We here at HIV Health Reform have been researching essential health benefits as well. Check out all of our posts on essential health benefits here, and check out our webinar and other EHB resources here.
