Description: Did you know that there are new health policy changes that benefit millions of girls and women who are experiencing abuse? This webinar will provide a basic overview of the new health policy changes that support screening and response to domestic violence (DV) by health care providers including a discussion of a key provision of the ACA that requires most insurance policies to cover screening and brief counseling for DV.

What do these new health policy changes on DV mean for domestic/sexual violence advocates? They offer opportunities for deeper collaborations and coalition building with health providers, stronger referrals, and the potential for better outcomes for women. They may also likely lead to increased demands for training, coalition building and referrals over time. Millions of women, covered by employer-sponsored insurance, the new Insurance Marketplace, and Medicaid will be eligible to receive these services. Speakers will discuss who will be able to access these services, as well as how DV advocates can work with health care providers to screen and respond to women as safely and effectively as possible.

This webinar is co-sponsored by Futures Without Violence’s National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence and the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. DHHS.
