Information

Why Attend?

  • Learn how to distinguish between Medicare and Medicaid
  • Review the basics of Medicare coverage (Parts A, B, C, and D)
  • Review the basics of Medicaid and coverage in Virginia
  • Examine what Medicaid expansion is
  • Understand the basics and planning issues with Medicaid long-term care
  • Review the basics of Medicaid Waiver—CCC Plus and DD Waiver programs

Even attorneys often confuse the federal Medicare program and the federal/state Medicaid program. This seminar will discuss the differences between the two programs and outline the basics of Medicare, including eligibility and coverage. The program presenter will focus on Virginia Medicaid long-term care basics including some helpful planning tools, Medicaid Waiver coverage, and Medicaid expansion.

Attendees will obtain a basic understanding of Medicare and Medicaid. Primarily geared to address the needs of the non-specialist attorney, this seminar will help attendees understand the aim and design of these government-based health care programs: how these programs fit together and how they differ. Attendees will also learn to evaluate their clients’ needs and when to either seek help or make useful referrals.
