This webinar took place on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.
Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) allow individuals to receive the care and supports they need to remain living at home and connected to their communities rather than having to go into an institution to receive care. To ensure access to HCBS is equitably available to those who qualify for services, comprehensive and publicly reported data based on race, age, geography, type of disability, and other factors is critical.
Drawing from our recently released paper for the California Health Care Foundation, this webinar, Using Data for Good: Towards More Equitable Home and Community-Based Services in Medi-Cal, will provide a summary of the challenges to data collection in the current HCBS infrastructure, discuss recommendations to address gaps in data collection and reporting, and provide strategies to move these recommendations forward.
Who Should Participate:
- California advocates, HCBS providers, and policymakers
- Advocates in other states interested in increasing equitable access to Medicaid HCBS
- Amber Christ, Directing Attorney, Health Team
- Tiffany Huyenh-Cho, Senior Staff Attorney
