Hard to believe, but AALS Annual Meeting 2014 is just around the corner. Aging & Law Section Chair Susan Cancelosi (Wayne State Law) has planned a great program, and we look forward to the interaction between panel members and the audience.
The theme is "From the Affordable Care Act to Aging in Place: What You Need to Know as You Grow Older."
Mark Bauer (Stetson Law) on "Aging and 55+ Age-Restricted Housing."
Laura Hermer (Hamline Law) on "changes to Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act that impact the elderly, with particular attention to several state implementations of relevant state plan options and demonstration projects involving dual eligibles and others."
Richard Kaplan (Illinois Law) on “the very different world of financing health care that awaits retirees, including how to navigate the various Parts of Medicare and their attendant problems.”
Katherine Pearson (Penn State Law) will discuss "the emerging trend of states adopting laws authorizing nursing homes to collect unpaid debts from family members or fiduciaries."
I'll provide more details about the individual speakers' programs, both before and after the event. But remember to mark your calendar for New York City, on Friday, January 3, at 3:30-5:15. As always, there will be a short business meeting following the presentations and discussion.
