Alzheimer's Foundation of America Hails Significant Provisions for Dementia Community in Health Reform Law
Date:3/23/2010

re services and supports. 
  • Geriatric workforce provisions authorize funding to geriatric education centers to support training in geriatrics, chronic care management and long-term care for faculty in health professions schools and family caregivers; develop curricula and best practices in geriatrics; expand the geriatric career awards to advanced practice nurses, clinical social workers, pharmacists and psychologists; and establish traineeships for individuals who are preparing for advanced education nursing degrees in geriatric nursing. 
  • Clinical Trials Provision prohibits insurers from dropping coverage because an individual chooses to participate in a clinical trial and from denying coverage for routine care that they would otherwise provide just because an individual is enrolled in a clinical trial for the treatment of life-threatening diseases.   

  • "Several other provisions that passed as part of health reform will also be of great help:

    • Provides assistance to Medicare beneficiaries in the 'doughnut hole' or gap in prescription drug coverage.
    • Ends insurance company practices of discriminating and denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions, health status or gender.
    • Eliminates co-pays for preventative Medicare benefits."
