Health and Wellness Resources
Finding healthcare resources can sometimes be problematic for people with disabilities. For instance, medical offices might not be accessible or have accessible equipment. People with disabilities might be uninsured or underinsured. Providers might also be so focused on the person’s disability that they neglect to discuss other health issues. Learn how to navigate the health care system and become an active participant in your health care.
Some Tips to Help:
- Read about disability inclusion from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office on Disability and Health.
- Find low or no cost federally funded community health care centers and children’s hospitals in your community.
- Learn more about home health care, including the types of services typically provided and how to choose providers from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
