Description:

One year ago, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued guidance explaining how and when Medicaid can cover services that are usually provided without charge to the community. This guidance effectively reverses HHS’ longstanding policy prohibiting Medicaid coverage of “free care” – an action that has profound implications for public entities that serve low income people, particularly children. In this webinar, panelists will explain the rule and discuss the implications for schools, local health departments, and Medicaid managed care plans.

You may qualify for CLE credit. ASLME is an approved provider of continuing legal education credits in several states. ASLME will also apply for CLE credits in other states upon request.
