New Recommendations for Improving Access to Care for Minority Persons with Disabilities

People with disabilities often lack access to health care services. Minority persons with disabilities are doubly burdened. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Minority Health recently released "Assuring Health Equity for Minority Persons with Disabilities: A Statement of Recommendations and Principles" with the hopes of ensuring that the needs of this population be specifically addressed to ensure that the  benefits of health care reform are available to all.
