The Northwest ADA Center at the University of Washington is conducting a new research study on Health Care Access.

You may qualify if you are:

  • A person with a disability*
  • At least 18 years old
  • Have needed health care within the last 12 months
  • Live in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington


  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets out guidelines for health care access for people with disabilities, health conditions, or aging.
  • This study aims to capture experiences in accessing health care as it relates to the ADA.
  • Participants will be asked to complete a short eligibility screening questionnaire.
  • The full survey asks about participant’s demographics and their experiences in accessing health care.
  • This is a one-time survey that can be completed online, over the phone, or on a paper survey.
  • Participants will be eligible for a drawing of $50 Amazon eGift cards.


  • The ADA is over 25 years old but barriers still remain. The goal of this research is to find out where those barriers exist and ways of improving access.
