Medicaid, the single largest source of health coverage in the United States, is a joint federal and state program that provides health coverage to children, pregnant women, parents, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. Join the Military Families Learning network at 11:00 a.m. ET on February 23, 2022, as Christopher Plein, Ph.D., Eberly Family Professor for Outstanding Public Service at West Virginia University, discusses Medicaid, new program developments and possibilities for the future.
To join the virtual webinar, simply RSVP at The Changing World of Medicaid: Updates and Developments.
Dr. Plein will provide a general overview of the Medicaid program and how it is relevant to military families and communities, and expansion efforts in the various states that has resulted in more coverage for eligible individuals and families. In addition, he will review Medicaid waiver programs that provide home and community-based services for those with disabilities and explore how the program is helping the broader adoption of telehealth and telemedicine services in healthcare delivery.
For service providers interested in continuing education credit, this upcoming webinar will offer 1.0 CE credit for social workers, licensed professional counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, case managers, board certified patient advocates and certified family life educators.
