In conjunction with Aimed Alliance’s “Health Equity in IBD” project, Aimed Alliance has developed new resources for patients with IBD. These new resources include (1) a brochure on the Americans with Disabilities Act and how some individuals with IBD may qualify for these protections; (2) a brochure on the Family Medical Leave Act which permits eligible employees with IBD to take protected time off for certain medical conditions; and (3) a brochure on how to appeal a health benefit denial. Use the links below to access these new resources in English and Spanish.
