This webinar took place on Thursday, December 13, 2018 from 10am – 11 am PT/ 1 pm -2pm ET.
Medicaid is an important source of health insurance coverage for many of the 40 million family caregivers in the United States who do not have access to other affordable coverage options. However, many states are in the process of designing or implementing policies that require family caregivers and others who are eligible for Medicaid to work a certain number of hours per month or qualify for an exemption to maintain their health coverage. Despite “caregiver” exemptions, these burdensome work requirements will cause many family caregivers who are in fact eligible for Medicaid to lose their coverage.
This webinar highlights key findings from a new Justice in Aging issue brief. We discuss our state-by-state survey of how Medicaid work requirements apply to family caregivers and analysis of the particular harms they will cause to family caregivers and the older adults they care for. Learn more and read the brief.
Closed captioning is available on this webinar.
