This recorded session was presented as part of the live seminar and webcast, Advising and Advocating for Your Elder Practice Clients: Emerging Issues to Address recorded on March 24, 2017, in Seattle, WA. If you attended the live seminar or webcast and reported CLE credits, you cannot also report credits from watching or listening to this recording.

The approval of the Medicaid Transformation Project under the authority of Section 1115 of the Social Security Act paves the way for the Aging and Long-term Supports Administration to add two exciting new programs to the array of LTSS benefits available to the residents of Washington State: Medicaid Alternative Care (MAC) and Tailored Supports for Older Adults (TSOA). MAC creates a new option for individuals who are eligible for Medicaid but not currently accessing Medicaid-funded LTSS and will provide services to unpaid caregivers designed to assist them in getting the necessary support. TSOA creates a new eligibility category and benefit package for individuals “at risk” of future Medicaid LTSS use who currently do not meet Medicaid financial eligibility criteria and is designed to help individuals avoid or delay impoverishment and the need for Medicaid-funded services. This session covers these programs in more detail and discusses how they can directly help your clients.

Presenters:
Lori Rolley – DSHS, Aging and Long Term Supports Administration
Will Reeves – DSHS, Aging and Long Term Supports Administration
Catharine Kinnaman – DSHS, Aging and Long Term Supports Administration
