ASHA Advocacy - Thunderclap - Congressional awareness event 6/27/17

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires all non-grandfathered health insurance plans offered in the small group and individual markets, both in and outside of the marketplace, to provide benefits for 10 essential health benefit (EHB) categories. Habilitative and rehabilitative services and devices is one of the EHB required categories. These services are vital in helping clients with speech, language, cognition, swallowing, and hearing/balance/tinnitus disorders to achieve, acquire, maintain, or regain skills to improve functional communication outcomes.


Request your members of Congress to reject efforts to eliminate coverage for habilitative and rehabilitative services and devices from legislative efforts to repeal, replace, or reform the Affordable Care Act.

    It was great to hear that Congressional awareness event has been held. I think Facilitative and rehabilitative services and devices is one of the EHB required categories. These services are vital in helping people with speech, language, cognition, swallowing, and hearing. I hope you will share some more events in future also; I will be waiting for it. https://www.reecoupons.com/categories/halloween
