In partnership with First Focus and the State Policy and Advocacy Reform Center and the Juvenile Law Center, FosterClub invites you to join us for #HealthCareFFY Webinar #2: Youth Who Relocate to Another State
Date: June 19, 2018
Time: 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM (ET)
Who should attend: Advocates, providers, administrators, policymakers, and foster youth and alumni.
Description: Under federal law, Medicaid provides coverage for qualifying youth who age out of foster care until they reach age 26, creating the eligibility category of Former Foster Youth (“FFY”). However, states are not mandated to cover of youth when they relocate from the state in which they were in foster care. To cover these youth — ”relocators” — states must apply for a Medicaid 1115 Waiver. Learn about how states are addressing this issue, and about new movement on the policy front about ensuring youth are covered regardless of what state they move to. Learn promising practices and challenges from advocates, state stakeholders, a former foster youth and young leader. Learn ways to advocate and get your questions answered by experts.
