Results Analysis - 2010-11 Annual Report

STRATEGY 4.1 Work with government partners to integrate and align health-related supports within the ministry and across ministries.

  • The Ministry worked with representatives from Employment and Immigration and Children and Youth Services to develop and implement recommendations for the alignment of health-related supports. As a result, effective July 1, 2010, all hearing aid funding is now delivered under one program, Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL). The alignment across ministries has made it easier for eligible Albertans who require hearing aids to get financial assistance. The change also improved administrative and payment processes for hearing aid vendors.
