NSCLC Webinar: State Medicaid Cases: Trends and Challenges

This webinar by attorneys from the National Senior Citizens Law Center will identify key budget-driven trends that limit access to critical Medicaid health benefits – particularly home and community services – that serve older adults, including: benefit and service caps, eligibility restrictions, service eliminations, proposals to shift older adult beneficiaries to managed care, and related issues.  It will examine recent legal challenges brought by NSCLC and others with a focus on what those cases can teach us about the promise and potential pitfalls of Medicaid Act and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) litigation. Finally, the presentation will cover new challenges to advocacy presented by states’ transition to managed care models of service delivery.    

Presenters:
Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney
Anna Rich, Staff Attorney
Evin Isaacson, Borchard Law and Aging Fellow
