Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to comprehend all the changes that are happening to New York’s Medicaid program? We can help!
Trilby de Jung, our Senior Health Law Attorney, and her Health Team colleagues here at Empire Justice have been hard at work analyzing and monitoring the upcoming changes to Medicaid and public health insurance coverage in New York State as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and how these changes will affect low income consumers. We are also busy keeping abreast of MRT (Medicaid Redesign Team) implementation.
We wanted to alert you to two new resources we’ve developed for health care advocates, policymakers, community based organizations and government partners working with Medicaid-eligible households:
- Upcoming lunch and learn topics will include Changes to Medicaid Home Care Options and Medicaid Eligibility in 2014 for the Elderly and Disabled. Stay tuned for announcements about dates and registration information!
Another great place to get timely and helpful information about Medicaid is by visiting www.nyhealthaccess.org, our collaborative website with the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) and the Legal Aid Society. Be sure to check Empire Justice’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
