News Alert: Webinar on Medical Assistance Co-Pays for Services to Children with Disabilities, Friday, October 5th at Noon.


 The Department of Public Welfare will begin implementing co-payments for certain services for children in Medicaid’s PH-95 category (sometimes called “loophole”). The information shared with families has produced confusion and a number of questions. Join the Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP) for a one hour webinar led by David Gates and Ann Bacharach on the latest changes to co-payments, what remains to be clarified, and families’ responsibilities and appeal rights. At the end of the webinar there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

To register for the webinar please visit the PEAL Center website.

 The Pennsylvania Health Law Project is a nonprofit legal services organization. As a nationally recognized expert and consultant on access to health care for low-income consumers, the elderly, and persons with disabilities, PHLP strives to educate and inform Pennsylvanians, their families and advocates, and the general public, regarding health policy issues that impact coverage and access to health care services.

These occasional alerts, designed to supplement our regular eNews, PA Health Law News and Senior Health News, allow PHLP to communicate promptly with consumers and advocates when a time-sensitive development in health policy arises.
