A Commitment to Ensuring Accessibility for Authorized Users

HealtheConnections is committed to ensuring that all authorized users, including those with disabilities, can successfully use our systems. Accessibility is a critical aspect of providing high-quality tools and services, and we, alongside our state partners, are actively improving our systems to meet Section 508 compliance criteria.

Section 508 outlines a set of standards to make electronic information and technology accessible to individuals with disabilities. This means that our interfaces will be designed to accommodate individuals with visual, auditory, and physical impairments, among others. We’ve kicked off a comprehensive multi-year plan to begin updating our publicly available content and tools to align with these standards.
