Federal Fiscal Policy

Funding of services for people with disabilities is a complex, and often times confusing, topic. ANCOR understands the intricacies of the financial systems that affect our providers, as well as the intricate relationship among federal agencies that promulgate regulations with competing priorities. ANCOR works closely with policymakers to advocate for sustainable funding models that will ensure the best possible outcomes for people with disabilities and the direct support professionals who support them.


Medicaid is the primary funding source for the services relied on by millions of Americans with disablities. The vast majority of supports ANCOR members provide are not covered by private insurance or other funding sources. To learn more about Medicaid, click here.

Health Care

People with disabilities rely on access to quality, affordable health care. People with significant disabilities may have more intensive health needs than the general population, and it is critical that our health care system is responsive to those needs. As states look at ways to manage costs and build efficiencies in their health care delivery systems, ANCOR works to ensure vital resources remain allocated to serve people with significant disabilities.
