HCBS Business Acumen Center
The Administration for Community Living announced on October 1, 2016 that the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) was awarded the HCBS Business Acumen Center. The new resource center will promote the development of business relationships between health plans and other integrated health services and community based disability organizations.
