Medicaid is designed to provide health coverage for our nation’s most vulnerable individuals and families. Medicaid makes it possible for millions of children, parents, pregnant women, people with disabilities and seniors to get the health coverage they need to get healthy and stay healthy. And now, more low-income adults are eligible for Medicaid than ever before as a result of the Medicaid expansion, implemented with federal support provided through the Affordable Care Act.

As the improvements to the Medicaid program brought about by the Affordable Care Act take full effect, the information provided in this workshop will give providers and their managers new tools to work effectively with clients who are applying for or currently enrolled in Medicaid. 

Designed for those new to Medicaid as well as more experienced providers, the day is broken into two sessions we're calling Medicaid 101 and Medicaid 202. You can register for either the 101 or the 201 session alone (half day) or both sessions (full day).
