The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront longstanding racial disparities in our healthcare system, and data show that older adults – especially older adults of color and those in residential congregate settings – are disproportionately impacted by the virus.  Aging advocates play a key role in holding health plans and government agencies accountable to meeting the needs of those most at risk during this time.  In this webinar, How Health Plans Serving Dual Eligibles Can Center Equity During COVID-19 , we will provide an overview of dual eligibles and the types of health plans that serve them.  We will also present specific programmatic recommendations that advocates can push health plans with dual eligible members in their community to adopt.  These recommendations are measures that plans can take to center equity in their ongoing response to COVID-19 and ensure they are meeting the needs of older adults of color during this challenging time.

Who Should Participate:
Aging and legal advocates, managed care plan staff and leadership, community-based providers, local government partners, and others advocating on behalf of low-income older adults.

Presenters:
Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
