ILRU and the NRH-Center for Health & Disability Research
present the

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.
