Understanding Medicaid is key to understanding the health and long-term care delivery system for older adults. Every year, over 7 million older adults rely on Medicaid to pay for necessary health services. Over two-thirds of all older adults who receive long-term care in their homes or in a nursing facility participate in the Medicaid program.
This free webinar will provide participants with a basic primer on the Medicaid program.
The webinar will cover:
• Information on funding of Medicaid
• Medicaid eligibility
• Key Medicaid protections
• Medicaid’s role in paying for health and long-term care for older adults
• Amber Christ, Justice in Aging
• Gelila Selassie, Justice in Aging
