Disability Rights Advocates Push Oregon’s Medicaid Program To Ensure People With Disabilities Are Not Discriminated Against And Denied Services.

November 19, 2021

The Portland (OR) Business Journal (11/19, Hayes, Subscription Publication) reports, “Disability rights advocates are pushing Oregon’s Medicaid program to change how it decides which treatments to cover in order to ensure that people with disabilities are not discriminated against and denied services.” The request by Disability Rights Oregon “comes as the state prepares its application to the federal government to renew its Medicaid waiver for another five years.” The document, “to be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in February, includes changes to advance health equity, while maintaining the coordinated care model Oregon created nearly a decade ago.”
