Secretary Tom Perez Announcement

The U.S. Department of Labor today announced two final rules to improve hiring and employment of veterans and for people with disabilities. One rule updates requirements under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; the other updates those under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For more than 40 years these laws have required federal contractors and subcontractors to affirmatively recruit, hire, train and promote qualified veterans and people with disabilities respectively. "In a competitive job market, employers need access to the best possible employees," said Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. "These rules make it easier for employers to tap into a large, diverse pool of qualified candidates."

United We Ride Dialogue Final Report, 2/2010

Transportation plays a critical role in providing access to employment, health care, education, community services, and other activities necessary for daily life. For people who cannot drive or afford an automobile, access to public transportation services is one of the major barriers to essential services and participation in community life. Transportation challenges can be even greater for people with disabilities, older adults, and people with limited incomes. The Federal Interagency Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) includes 11 federal departments, 9 of which are responsible for providing transportation for people with disabilities, older adults, and people with limited incomes. CCAM officially launched United We Ride in 2004 to: (1) Provide more rides for target populations for the same or fewer assets; (2) Simplify access; and (3) Increase customer satisfaction. CCAM asked the National Academy of Public Administration (National Academy) and Easter Seals Project ACTION to develop and host the first United We Ride (UWR) National Dialogue. The goal of the Dialogue was to help shape future policy direction and provide input to the next CCAM strategic plan. The United We Ride National Dialogue brought together key stakeholders using collaborative web-based technologies to discuss the following broad question: “What ideas can improve access to affordable and reliable transportation for people with disabilities, older adults, and people with limited incomes?” The attached docuemnt is the Final Report from the UWR Dialogue.

New Medicaid Rules-Promoting Community-Based Services to Persons with Disabilities

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)announced four initiatives to give states more flexibility to adopt innovative new practices and provide better, more coordinated care for people with Medicaid and Medicare while helping reduce costs for states and families. These initiatives support the work of the administration to make Medicaid more flexible and efficient and address long-term cost growth. Several of the announcements also help implement provisions of the Affordable Care Act. HHS announced:

  • Fifteen states will receive Federal funding to develop better ways to coordinate care for people with Medicare and Medicaid coverage, also known as dual eligibles, who often have complex and costly health care needs.
  • All states will receive increased flexibility to provide home and community-based services for more people living with disabilities.
  • All states are eligible to receive more money to develop simpler and more efficient information technology (IT) systems to modernize Medicaid enrollment.
  • A proposal by the state of New Jersey for flexibility to expand health coverage for nearly 70,000 low-income residents has been approved.

CMS proposed new rules giving states new flexibility for their programs to help people with disabilities choose to live in their communities rather than in institutions. The proposed rules reduce administrative barriers for states seeking to help multiple populations, which may include seniors and/or people with different types of disabilities. They will also allow individuals to participate in the design of their own array of services and supports, including such things as personal care and respite services for caregivers.

The Earnings Consequences of the Americans with Disabilities Act on People with Disabilities

According to the November 2013 report by Mathematica Policy Research (MPR) - The Earnings Consequences of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)on People with Disabilities - longer term wage trends post-ADA shows some increase in weekly wages over the longer term; but not when compared to wages of workers without a disability. The report states that: "Previous research nearly unanimously agrees that Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA) resulted in lower labor force participation and employment rates of people with disabilities." However, there has been a lack of consensus regarding the wage effects of the ADA. The MPR report findings indicate thet "in the short run the ADA insiginificantly increased weekly wages of disabiled workers while significantly increasing their wages in the longer run. Additionally, disabled workers with less education experienced the largest increase in wages. However, when non-disabled are included in the analysis, the wage effects of the ADA are insignificant which suggests the ADA did not significantly improve wages of the disabled compared to the non-disabled."

Webinar: Rebalancing Long-Term Care and Supports

Mathematica Policy Research's (MPR) Center for Studying Disability Policy (CSDP) announced an Issue Forum on Long-Term Care Services scheduled for Thursday, February 20, 11:45 am - 1:30 pm (ET). In 2009, approximately 1.3 million Medicaid enrollees with disabilities and chronic conditions received Medicaid-financed long-term care services and supports (LTSS) in institutional settings. To give Medicaid beneficiaries greater choice in where they live and from whom they receive services, and to deliver LTSS that are integrated, effective, efficient, and person-centered, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is promoting efforts to reduce dependence on institutional care and expand access to home- and community-based services (HCBS). This will explore the progress made in recent years on these rebalancing efforts.
