Medicaid Eligibility for the Elderly and Disabled (Non-MAGI Groups)
Although 2014 will bring many changes to the Medicaid eligibility and enrollment landscape, for certain groups of Medicaid beneficiaries including the elderly and disabled (the Non-MAGI groups) the process will remain essentially unchanged. This training will identify the Non-MAGI beneficiaries, and explain the budgeting process for beneficiaries in these groups. It will include calculating spend down and the use of Pooled Trusts and the MBI-WPD program to avoid spend down, as well as an overview of the changes in Medicaid managed care.
