Medicaid applicants or recipients must receive written notice whenever a state Medicaid agency or managed care plan denies, reduces, terminates, suspends or limits services, and they have a right to appeal the adverse action. Legal aid advocates play a critical role helping older adults navigate the appeal process, representing clients in fair hearings, and ensuring their rights are protected.
In this this free webcast, Legal Basics: Medicaid Appeals, participants will obtain a basic understanding of the following:
• Due process protections in Medicaid;
• Appeals processes and types of Medicaid decisions that can be appealed; and
• Common challenges faced in Medicaid appeals and strategies to address them.
This Legal Basics training builds on previous Medicaid webinars in the NCLER webinar series: Medicaid 101 and Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports. Participants are encouraged to review these materials prior to the Medicaid Appeals training.
