"Medicaid 101" for CHWs

This is a free Webinar available to all Pennsylvania Community Health Workers.

Special 2 hour Webinar “Medicaid 101”

Thursday, Oct. 13th 1-3 pm

"A growing number of states are authorizing Medicaid payment for CHW services. Just how they do it can make a big difference in the work of CHWs. CHWs and their Allies need to be involved in these decisions. Most CHWs know a lot about the “front end” of Medicaid: how to access care and even how to apply for eligibility. But you probably don’t know as much about the “back end:” how Medicaid pays for things and how they make decisions about coverage. So if Pennsylvania CHWs are going to be “at the table” for these discussions, you will need to get more comfortable with the language of Medicaid policy and operations. “Medicaid 101” can help you learn some of the basics.”
