I will be part of a panel discussion at this forum so I invite you to attend this forum being held
by the National Council on Disability and hosted by Access Living. See Amber’s invitation
and agenda for the meeting below.


As some of you know, the National Council on Disability (NCD) will be holding a forum on
Medicaid managed care here in Chicago on March 24. This event is part of a national series
that NCD is holding across the nation. Previous forums have been in Kansas and Florida.
After Chicago, upcoming forums will be in California and New York.  The goal of the forums is
to hear about the impact of Medicaid managed care on people with disabilities, and to share
the Medicaid managed care principles that NCD developed.  The conversation at the forum
will inform NCD in their ongoing recommendations to the federal government on the topic of
Medicaid managed care.



The event will be located at Access Living on our fourth floor, at 115 W. Chicago Avenue in

If you have not yet RSVP’d for this event, please do so by sending your RSVP to Ellen at ncdforums@gmail.com.  If you cannot attend but have written comment that you would like to
submit to NCD, please also share that with Ellen, again at ncdforums@gmail.com.

We hope to see you there.
