JUSTICE IN AGING WEBINAR
Legal Basics: Medicare Part D

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | Justice In Aging
REGISTRATION FEE: None | REGISTER

People with Medicare get their prescription drugs though the Medicare Part D program. This program is separate from the one that provides recipients with hospital and medical coverage. Medicare Part D has its own rules and can be complicated to navigate, even for the most seasoned advocate.

During this basic training Justice in Aging attorneys will provide essential information on Medicare Part D, with particular emphasis on how the program works for low income consumers.

The training will provide an overview of:

  • Eligibility and enrollment
  • The Low Income Subsidy (“Extra Help”)
  • Plan choices
  • Exceptions and appeals

Following the training, the audience will have a foundational understanding of Medicare Part D and the most common issues advocates encounter.

Newer legal services attorneys, law students, and aging and disability network professionals looking to understand the basic principles of Medicare Part D are encouraged to attend.

PRESENTERS:
Georgia Burke, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Amber Christ, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

JUSTICE IN AGING WEBINAR
Elder Financial Abuse and Medicaid Denials

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | Justice In Aging
REGISTRATION FEE: None | REGISTER

Financial exploitation can devastate low-income older adults, especially those who rely on Medicaid for their health and long-term care. For example, older adults who are victims of financial abuse may be denied eligibility for Medicaid because their abuser won’t turn over their bank records. Without Medicaid eligibility, the older adult may be threatened with eviction or involuntary discharge from a nursing home because of nonpayment.

Legal services are critical to helping older victims of financial exploitation receive the medical care and services to which they are entitled. Join us for Elder Financial Abuse and Medicaid Denials to learn how to identify victims of elder financial abuse, what problems this exploitation can cause for Medicaid eligibility, and how legal services attorneys can help their older clients receive the benefits they need and prevent future problems accessing Medicaid.

PRESENTERS:
Jennifer Goldberg, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Jahna Locke, Elder Justice Legal Fellow, Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps, New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG)
