Legal Basics: Medicaid Appeals
Event Date: 
06.12.2018 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time
Short Description: 

Basics webinar on Medicaid Appeals.

Full Description: 

Medicaid applicants or recipients must receive written notice whenever a state Medicaid agency or managed care plan denies, reduces, terminates, suspends or limits services, and they have a right to appeal the adverse action. Legal aid advocates play a critical role helping older adults navigate the appeal process, representing clients in fair hearings, and ensuring their rights are protected.

In this this free webcast, Legal Basics: Medicaid Appeals, participants will obtain a basic understanding of the following:

  • Due process protections in Medicaid;
  • Appeals processes and types of Medicaid decisions that can be appealed; and
  • Common challenges faced in Medicaid appeals and strategies to address them.

This Legal Basics training builds on previous Medicaid webinars in the NCLER webinar series: Medicaid 101 and Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports. Participants are encouraged to review these materials prior to the Medicaid Appeals training. 

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
