Webinar: How Will Proposed Changes to Medicaid Impact Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence?
March 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Medicaid is health insurance for one in 5 people in the United States, including women, people with disabilities and seniors, and it covers 40 percent of children in the United States. Medicaid provides comprehensive coverage–including medical and behavioral health services–and keeps out-of-pocket spending low to keep coverage affordable. For survivors of intimate partner violence and their children, Medicaid puts needed health care services, like screening and brief counseling for intimate partner violence, in reach. Join FUTURES for a webinar that looks at how Medicaid supports survivors’ health insurance needs–and an update on the policy proposals that threaten access to care.
