Exploring health care changes and their impact upon the brain injury community

Rarely does a day pass without some discussion about access to health care and health care reform. Whether it is Medicaid redesign, the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Supreme Court decision, managed care, Medicare, Home health or health insuranceconfusion abounds. The questions and concerns are even more immediate for the brain injury community.

On Wednesday, October 17, 2012 from 8:30 am to 1:00 PM the Brain Injury Association of New York State will present a program, "Brain Injury in the Community--Access to Services:The Changing Landscape" at the offices of OPWDD, First Floor Auditorim, 75 Morton Street, Manhattan, New York. I am pleased to be a panelist on this program discussing the future outlook for persons with a brain injury and their family members.

This program provides an opportunity for individuals with brain injury, family members, providers, and professionals to come together to learn about the health care changes on the horizon. This conference will address the impact these changes may have, and the challenges faced by the community moving forward.
