Advocates Urge Transition COVID-19 Advisors to Protect People with Pre-Existing Conditions and Disabilities
November 30, 2020
The Society has supported two complementary sets of recommendations to the Biden-Harris COVID 19 Advisory Board urging specific measures to protect people with MS and other chronic or disabling conditions during and after the public health emergency. Along with 31 other national voluntary health organizations, the Society recommend a range of policy measures needed to promote access to affordable health insurance coverage adequate to the needs of people with pre-existing conditions. Additionally, we joined with leaders in the disability community in advocating other specific federal policies to protect the lives of people with disabilities during the pandemic.
