National Advisory Board
"Disability and aging extends across race, ethnicity, level of education and socioeconomic status. All of us have experienced the effects of disability or the aging process."
- Lex Frieden, NAB Convener
In 2007, Amerigroup formed The National Advisory Board on Improving Health Care Services for Seniors and People with Disabilities (NAB). Led by Lex Frieden, the NAB is comprised of a distinguished group activists and experts in the fields of disability and aging.
The NAB works with Amerigroup on improving health care and support services for millions of seniors and people with disabilities; people who struggle to navigate the complexities of health care and long-term services and supports.
Amerigroup and the NAB identify and promote services and supports models that foster independent living, choice and quality of life for people who are aging or have disabilities, including:
- Member home visits
- Policy development and waiver services impacting the right to choose treatments, services and living arrangements
- Stakeholder and consumer engagement
- Education and awareness outreach
