This training will provide an overview of Medical Assistance (also known as Medicaid) program eligibility in Pennsylvania, with special focus on domestic violence survivors. The training will provide information on how clients and their advocates can navigate the Medical Assistance system. There is much more to Medical Assistance than regular healthcare coverage that includes personal assistance services at home, mental health coverage, home modification, medical and non-medical transportation, and more. With private health insurance companies taking over as gate keepers of the Medical Assistance programs in Pennsylvania, this timely presentation will help advocates for survivors acquire greater knowledge on how the Medical Assistance system is working and learn strategies to help clients navigate the process. PHLP through direct client representation is aware of the many difficulties victims of crime and their families endure. We will share some of those stories with the attendees.
This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1.5 hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit.
