Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living Seeks Research Participants

The Collaborative on Health Reform and Independent Living, or CHRIL, is a 5-year research project funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) to study how health reforms affect working-age adults with disabilities. The CHRIL is currently looking for individuals with disabilities to participate in their research efforts. During the months of April through July, CHRIL staff from the University of Kansas will be interviewing 20-25 adults with disabilities across the US about their experiences using and getting health insurance and / or Medicaid and Medicare. Participants completing an interview will each receive $40.

CHRIL is currently recruiting adults 18-62 years of age with disabilities and/or chronic health conditions. If you would like more information about participating in these interviews or would like to sign up, please visit:  You can also call toll free (1-855-556-6328) or email (
