Research and Training Center
on Managed Care and Disability
The purpose of the Center is to provide national leadership
on the major health service and health policy issues facing consumers
with disabilities in managed health care arrangements.
The Center conducts research; prepares special policy
analyses, hosts forums for discussion; presents expert testimony
to Congress and governmental agencies; publishes in the health policy,
consumer, and trade literature; trains graduate students with disabilities
in health services research; and disseminates findings to the diverse
consumer, provider, payer, academic, and policy making audiences.
The Center seeks to serve as a catalyst in the nation's
capital and at the state level for the development of new ideas
that will make managed care and the larger health care system more
responsive to the needs of people with disabilities.
