Medicaid & Medicare: Important Resources in a Time of National Health Crisis

June 24, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Folders labeled Medicare and Medicaid

About This Webinar:

Over their fifty plus year history, both the Medicaid and Medicare programs have proven valuable and adaptable in the face of changing national health needs and priorities.  These programs may provide health coverage and access for military families as they do for millions of Americans in a variety of familial, financial, and health situations.  Whether in response to a disaster caused by a hurricane, a downturn in the economy, or in the face of the unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis, public officials turn to Medicare and Medicaid to help provide solutions and care.  This webinar provides updates on how these programs are helping to meet the needs of Americans, especially in uncertain times.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide an overview of both Medicaid and Medicare programs and why they might be important to military families.
  • Review policy developments related to funding, eligibility criteria, and services.
  • Identify changes and updates to Medicare and Medicaid services in 2020.
  • Examine coordination of benefits such as health coverage and prescription drugs
