Futures Without Violence, in partnership with the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, and the Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is hosting a free webinar entitled, “Open Enrollment AND Beyond: How the Affordable Care Act can help patients experiencing domestic and interpersonal violence.”
This webinar will provide a basic overview of the coverage requirements in the Affordable Care Act and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force’s “B” recommendation for screening and intervention for domestic violence (DV). Speakers will discuss who will be able to access these services, what is required in terms of screening and brief counseling, and refer to tools on addressing domestic violence safely and effectively as well as billing for these services. They will also discuss the IRS regulations on financial aid for domestic violence as well as information about how survivors can access a “hardship” exemption to avoid paying penalties if they are not able to enroll this year.
