Medicaid Advocacy Needed

The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) has been in touch with staff from the minority side of the House Oversight, Subcommittee on Health Care, DC, the Census and National Archives. The majority recently announced they will hold a hearing entitled, “Examining Abuses of Medicaid Eligibility Rules” at 10:00am on Wednesday, September 21 in room 2247 Rayburn House Office Building. You should be able to watch the hearing on Subcommitte on Health Care website.  An elder law attorney, a Medicaid administrator, and Stephen Moses will be testifying for the Republican side. The director of Illinois Family Services will be the sole Democratic witness.

The staff would like stories from elder law attorneys of clients who are receiving Medicaid for long-term services and supports.  She wants members to be able to pull from these stories to demonstrate the importance of Medicaid for long-term care so the members can put a face on the issue.

If you are in the DC area and can attend the hearing, the minority needs real people to attend the hearing
