Chronic Illness and Disability Partnership

The Chronic Illness and Disability Partnership consists of national organizations representing individuals living with a wide range of chronic illnesses and disabilities. The Partnership was initially formed after the passage of the Affordable Care Act to ensure that implementation of the law was carried out in a manner that adequately addressed the health needs of those living with chronic illnesses and disabilities. As we face a period of substantial uncertainty regarding the future of the Affordable Care Act, the Partnership continues to advocate for and protect access to care for these vulnerable populations.
