The Partnership Center Newsletter

May 12, 2010

In This Issue:


Dear Partners,
 

It has been over a month since the President signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In the coming months, the Partnership Center will be coordinating outreach efforts and working with our colleagues throughout HHS to make sure that your communities have the most current and clear information about what health reform means to them, and also what ongoing health assets and resources can help to ensure healthy neighborhoods.

For a great one-stop shop on key information and updates related to health reform, please visit www.healthreform.gov. Feel free to bookmark the site and check it frequently for updates!

 Also, see our Featured Update for some of the key provisions of health reform that are in effect now or take effect this summer and fall. To download one page fliers for your community members on how health reform relates to children, seniors, women, young adults and others– click here.

As always, please see the bottom section of our newsletter for an updated and expanded grants section with information regarding grants for which community and faith based nonprofits like yours are eligible to compete.

Sincerely,

Alexia Kelley, Director
Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships
US Department of Health & Human Services

3) Help for Uninsured American with Pre-Existing Conditions until Exchange is Available (Interim High-Risk Pool)

Provides access to affordable insurance for Americans who are uninsured because of a pre‐existing condition through a temporary subsidized high-risk pool.  Effective in 2010.

4) Ends Rescissions

Bans insurance companies from dropping people from coverage when they get sick.  Effective 6 months after enactment.

5) Begins to Close the Medicare Part D Donut Hole

6) Free Preventive Care under Medicare

Eliminates co-payments for preventive services and exempts preventive services from deductibles under the Medicare program.  Effective beginning January 1, 2011.

7) Extends Coverage for Young People up to 26th Birthday through Parents' Insurance

Requires new health plans and certain grandfathered plans to allow young people up to their 26th birthday to remain on their parents’ insurance policy, at the parents’ choice.  Effective 6 months after enactment.
