Upcoming CLE: Current Developments in Medicare and Medicaid for Long-Term Care

Rhode Island attorneys who practice elder law or advise healthcare facilities may be interested to know about an upcoming RI Bar Association CLE seminar on Medicare and Medicaid.  I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking at this seminar along with two senior members of the Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services next month. Here are the details:

Current Developments in Medicare and Medicaid for Long-Term Care
2-4pm, Tuesday, May 24th, 2016
Rhode Island Law Center, Cranston
41 Sharpe Drive, Cranston, RI 02920

*Unable to attend in person? A live webcast takes place at the same time*

Many Americans rely on Medicare and Medicaid, and they are critical in paying for long-term care. As an attorney advising a client or representing a hospital or nursing home facility, it is imperative to keep up with the changing laws.

This program will review an under-utilized technique to enable clients to obtain extended access to the Medicare Part A skilled nursing home benefit. It will also review changes in the structure and procedures at the Rhode Island Offices of Health and Human Services (OHHS) and the Department of Human Services (DHS) and how to assist clients with Medicaid applications.

Don’t miss your chance to expand your proficiency in this unique area of practice and meet with personnel from the Executive Office of Health and Human Services.
