Medicaid’s Home and Community-Based Services Program: An Orientation for Homeless Health Care Providers

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
May 31, 2012 | 2 p.m. Eastern

This webinar will provide an overview of the Federal Home and Community-based Services program, describe opportunities for homeless health care providers to improve access to their states’ HCBS programs, and share examples of two states that have improved access to their HCBS programs for people who are experiencing homelessness. The Medicaid expansion in 2014 to cover most people earning at or below 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL) will make nearly all people who are experiencing homelessness eligible for Medicaid. While health insurance coverage is a significant step towards improved health and wellness for people who lack housing, the actual benefits for those who are newly eligible will be left largely up to states. As such, homeless service providers should become familiar with their state’s HCBS program as a potential resource for providing additional services to their clients.
