Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) is an umbrella term that describes a wide variety of programs states operate to provide long-term services and supports to people in their homes and communities, as opposed to nursing facilities and other institutions. Medicaid is the largest payer of HCBS, but the services and populations it covers vary from state to state. This variation, which is due in part to the fact that federal law does not require states to provide HCBS, also leads to disparate access and quality for older adults and people with disabilities, particularly for people of color, depending on where they live.
This webinar, HCBS 101: Access to Home & Community-Based Care for Older Adults, will provide an overview of the HCBS infrastructure and gaps in coverage and services for low-income older adults. We will also talk about some of the potential solutions to improving HCBS that are gaining traction in Congress and the Administration.
Who should participate:
Aging and legal advocates, community-based providers, local government partners, and others advocating on behalf of low-income older adults.
Amber Christ, Directing Attorney
Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, March 16, 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.
