The Affordable Care Act

Access the SLN’s webinar, The ACA: Sorting it All Out For Sibs here. Many thanks to the presenters, Rachel, Kristina and Angela. Once again, we want to thank AUCD for allowing us to use their webinar platform.

Participants asked a lot of great questions throughout to make sure sibs have the information that they need. This webinar is focused towards implications for people with disabilities, but the information is useful for everyone, so feel free to check it out regardless of whether you are a sibling!

As the Affordable Care Act has recently been implemented, we have joined with partner organizations to offer information that we hope will be useful to you and your families.
