Upcoming Webinar: Peers in Health Reform Outreach and Education
Thursday, December 18, 2014 | 1–2:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Presenters: Jack Cameron, Joelyn Morgan, Shoshanna Scholar, Mary Jo McMillen, and Arielle Spanvill
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is changing how Americans access health care. Recovery community organizations/peer-run organizations are playing increasingly vital roles in ensuring that the benefits of health reform reach individuals with behavioral health needs. These efforts include educating recovery communities about health reform, developing and refining eligibility and enrollment processes, assisting with access to primary and specialty care, identifying risks to sustaining coverage and access to care, and contributing to changes to policy and program guidelines.
This webinar will highlight the efforts of the 2014 Peer Awards for Health Reform Education projects, focusing on what the projects learned about effective education, outreach, enrollment, and treatment access activities. Other topics will include the need to build health reform-specific organizational capacity and the potential long-term impact of health reform on access to peer recovery support services.
