Leading Healthcare Practices And Training: Defining And Delivering Disability-Competent Care

Time to read: less than a 1 minute.

The CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO) facilitated an optional webinar series for interested providers and health care professionals, front-line staff with health plans and practices, and stakeholders to introduce and explore the many uses of the Disability-Competent Care (DCC) Model. Meeting the needs of persons with disabilities is of increasing importance as individuals live longer and the prevalence of adults with functional limitations and disabilities rises. The DCC model, developed by providers serving adults with disabilities, is a resource for providers, health plans, and healthcare organizations to enhance capacity to integrate care for adults with disabilities. Webinars were tailored by audience and topic within this subject area.
