Date: Postponed - more information will be available soon
Time: 10:00am-11:30am PDT/ 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT
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 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force’s “B” recommendation for screening and intervention for domestic violence (DV) and also the health insurance options available to women under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The speakers will describe a key new provision of the ACA that requires most insurance policies to cover screening and brief counseling for domestic and interpersonal violence and where health care providers and DV victim advocates can turn to for help. Millions of women, covered by employer-sponsored insurance, the new Insurance Marketplace, and Medicaid will be eligible to receive these services. The speakers will discuss who will be able to access these services, what is required in terms of screening and brief counseling, and provide tools on addressing DV safely and effectively as well as billing for these services.
This webinar is being co-sponsored by Futures Without Violence’s National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, the National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse, and the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. DHHS.
