Hosted by: Friday Morning Collaborative, a coalition of national aging and disability organizations working together to advance home and community-based services and supports, with support from The SCAN Foundation

States are increasingly planning to establish or expand Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs. 

According to a recent CMS report, 16 states operate MLTSS programs serving approximately 389,000 individuals. By 2014, the number of states with such programs could increase to 26.     

A previous Friday Morning Collaborative webinar provided an overview of key issues and principles for aging and disability advocates. 

This webinar builds upon these issues by highlighting state advocate experiences in states with existing MLTSS programs or states actively pursuing. 

Speakers:

  • Gordon Bonnyman, Tennessee Justice Center
  • Valerie J. Bogart, Evelyn Frank Legal Resources Program, Selfhelp Community Services, Inc.
  • Mitch Hagopian, Disability Rights Wisconsin

Space is limited, so please register early and share lines when possible. Close captioning is available. The webinar will also be recorded and made available for viewing following the event.
