Health Benefits for Vocational Rehabilitation Consumers: Comparison of Access Rates with Workers in the General Population
Lustig, Daniel C.; Strauser, David R.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v53 n2 p87-95 2010
Access to health insurance is one of the critical aspects of securing employment for people with disabilities. This study investigated whether vocational rehabilitation consumers secured employment with an employer who offered health insurance at similar rates to workers in the general population. In general, the results show that vocational rehabilitation consumers had significantly lower health insurance access rates than workers in the general population. Implications for rehabilitation counselors are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
