Oral health is the number one unmet healthcare need for individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities. The Every Smile Matters Nevada Project https://lnkd.in/eS3qaRuB, is working to change that, and we need your help.

The project is funded by American Rescue Plan Act funding, in partnership with Nevada Medicaid, Aging and Disabilities Division, and the Nevada Oral Health Program, and need individuals and their caregivers to complete surveys (and interviews if the would like to do an interview) that will inform a Nevada Oral Health Needs for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD).

The purpose of the survey is to identify the barriers to accessing oral health care and maintaining good oral health that our population faces so that we can advocate for better for our community members with ID/DD. The survey can be found here: https://lnkd.in/eNjKS-zW and will only take about 7 minutes to complete.

All surveys are anonymous and identifying information will not be tracked or shared, only used to inform future initiatives to address unmet needs of people with disabilities across Nevada.

Innivee Strategies is conducting a needs assessment on aging and disability on behalf of a large nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that advocates for older adults to better understand the experiences of people with disabilities.

This needs assessment will gather information about the experiences and perspectives of people aged 45 years and older with a hearing, vision, and/or mobility disability. Data will be collected on whether and how people with disabilities prefer to self-identify, their lived experience, quality of life, and more.

This needs assessment will have a positive impact on the lives of millions of Americans who are disabled as they age. You can read more about this project here (link)

Here's how you can get involved:
1. Take a short, 25-minute survey:

When your child turns 18 years old, they legally become an adult. This is an important time to consider their financial future – especially if they need additional care into adulthood.

CMS Announces Medicare Will Cover Seat Elevation Equipment for Eligible Power Wheelchair Users

Yesterday, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced in a national coverage decision that Medicare will now cover seat elevation devices for power wheelchairs. This decision follows years of advocacy by disability and aging organizations. Seat elevation devices are critical to power wheelchair users who use them to perform activities of daily living, such as transferring to and from their wheelchair, preparing food, and dressing. Beneficiaries will be responsible for applicable cost-sharing.

The decision by CMS follows a formal request from the Independence Through Enhancement of Medicare and Medicaid (ITEM) Coalition and other supporting organizations. Their request was supported by public input from numerous individuals and aging and disability organizations and the National Council on Disability, an independent federal agency that advises on disability policy. Research funded by ACL’s National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) helped provide the evidence base to inform the decision.

ACL and its network of disability and aging organizations will partner with CMS to help make sure wheelchair users are fully aware of this new benefit.

In their request for Medicare coverage, advocates also asked CMS to cover standing equipment for certain power wheelchairs. CMS is considering that request separately.
