Committee on Health Care Utilization and Adults with Disabilities

Type: Consensus Study
Topics: Health Services, Coverage, and Access, Select Populations and Health Equity
Board: Board on Health Care Services

Activity Description

The consensus committee's task is to identify types of health care utilizations that are good proxies for impairment severity for the purposes of the Social Security Agency (SSA)'s disability program, and to do this in the context of a changing health care system. This information will help SSA update the Listing of Impairments.

As of March 2016, the Health and Medicine Division continues the consensus studies and convening activities previously undertaken by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).
