Most clients do not understand the difference between Medicaid and Medicare or believe they cannot qualify for Medicaid financially. This program will explore how Medicaid programs for long-term care coverage differ from traditional community Medicaid and how your client may become eligible. Secondly, we will also explore the NJ Workability program which was recently expanded to offer health coverage for many more working individuals with disabilities by eliminating many of the financial eligibility requirements.
Key topics to be discussed:
Institutional Medicaid vs Community Medicaid
Managed Long-Term Services and Supports waiver
Eligibility and Asset Preservation
