One result of the 2016 elections has been increased discussion of Medicaid “cap” proposals.

What would happen if federal Medicaid funding were capped, and individual states were given broad authority to re-write their Medicaid programs?

How could states maintain necessary health care services with drastic cuts in federal funding?

What would Medicaid block grants and per capita caps mean for the older adults you serve?

This webinar will explain why the cap proposals would be harmful to the over six million older Americans who rely upon Medicaid coverage.

The webinar will include advocacy strategies to retain current Medicaid protections and prevent cuts—without a doubt, the next few months are critical for all who care about health care for low-income older Americans.

For more on how capping Medicaid funding would harm older adults, read (and then share) our blog post, fact sheet, and issue brief.

Presenters: Jennifer Goldberg, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webinar will take place on Tuesday March 7, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET.
