Medicaid Telehealth Policies for Seniors

May 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted an unprecedented number of telehealth policy changes within state Medicaid agencies. Many of these changes were intended impact and protect vulnerable elderly populations. While most of these changes are set to expire after the public health emergency, they have created multiple learning opportunities and policy options for policymakers to consider moving forward. Join the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) and leading Medicaid experts on Friday, May 14, 2021 for the third webinar in our Spring webinar series, Telehealth Medicaid Policies for Seniors. This webinar will bring together Medicaid officials for a panel discussion about how state programs and Medicaid agencies incorporate telehealth into their services for seniors (e.g., Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)) and other benefits for dually-enrolled for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. State Medicaid presenters will also discuss relevant policy changes during COVID-19 and how that has impacted plans for the future of telehealth and seniors in their states.
