Abstract

Medicare and Medicaid were passed to serve as safety nets for the country's most vulnerable populations, yet, the disabled community continues to be one whose health care needs are not being met. This group is all too frequently left to suffer health disparities due to cultural incompetency, stigma and misunderstanding, and an inability to create policy changes that covers the population as a whole and their acute and long-term needs.

Keywords: Disabilities, Health, Law, Policy, Safety Net
