ANCOR Signs On to Support Rehabilitation, Habilitation as EHB

Share this page
On March 3, ANCOR joined with dozens of other national health and disability organizations in sending a letter (attached below) supporting the preservation of the essential health benefit (EHB) category of “rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices” in any reform of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Recent draft proposals have recommended eliminating or scaling back EHBs, which are minimum requirements for services that must be covered in insurance plans. The letter was sent to all Congressional offices, as well as to Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
