The National Council has published two new resources to help states, providers, and consumers prepare for upcoming changes under healthcare reform:
- Our updated health reform summary chart describes the major provisions that will affect behavioral health organizations and consumers. This chart has been updated to include information about the effective date of each provision and the levels of appropriated or authorized funding for each program.
- Our new Roadmap for State Associations provides tools, strategies, and resources that advocates can use in their efforts to influence the implementation of the ACA in the states. Focusing on six areas of health reform, the Roadmap provides a brief summary, a list of action items for advocates, and helpful resources in each area. The Roadmap is designed to help advocates and state associations position themselves as key resources for state agencies, state legislators, and other advocacy groups.
