Affordable Care Act supports families of children with special health care needs

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today
announced $4.9 million in Affordable Care Act funding to support
Family-to-Family Health Information Centers, primarily non-profit
organizations run by and for families with children with special health
care needs. These centers are staffed by trained family leaders who have children with
special health care needs, and expertise in navigating federal, state
and local public and private health care systems. HHS’ Health Resources
and Services Administration (HRSA) oversees the centers. Information on the Affordable Care Act can be found at
