In the pre-recorded training, Erin Loubier (Whitman-Walker Health) and Jennifer Mezey (Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia) provide an overview of who is eligible for and how to keep public health insurance (Medicare/QMB, Medicaid, D.C. Healthcare Alliance, and financial assistance for individual/family plan options on D.C. Health Link-D.C.’s state health insurance exchange).  In addition to learning about eligibility and practical tips on applying and re-certifying, Erin and Jennifer will also share common situations consumers face and practice tips to resolve them.
