The Changing World of Medicaid: Updates & Developments

February 23, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


About This Webinar

The past two years have seen important developments in Medicaid programming across the United States. Expanded Medicaid eligibility and special provisions have been instrumental in our nation’s efforts to address the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency and its effects on individuals, families, and communities. Keeping up-to-date on Medicaid developments is important to those who provide support to military families and caregivers. In this webinar, Christopher Plein, Ph.D., will provide an overview of the Medicaid program, new program developments and possibilities for the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide a general overview of the Medicaid program and how it is relevant to military families and communities.
  • Provide updates on Medicaid expansion efforts in the various states that has resulted in more coverage for eligible individuals and families.
  • Review developments with Medicaid waiver programs that provide home and community based services for those with disabilities and other care needs.
  • Explore how Medicaid is helping with the broader adoption of telehealth and telemedicine services in healthcare delivery.
