Sustainable Financing for Community Health Workers - Exploring Medicaid Opportunities
Webinar: Sustainable Financing for Community Health Workers - Exploring Medicaid Opportunities Date: Thursday, February 11, 2016 Time: 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Utilization of Community Health Workers (CHW) has historically been supported through grant funding. However, as more states come to understand the value of CHWs as a means of improving health outcomes through care coordination, preventive care, and community-based engagement activities, they are looking for sustainable financing strategies, including Medicaid. Hosted by the Public Health Institute, this webinar will feature speakers from state agencies in Connecticut, Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania who will provide valuable insight into how they have approached sustainable financing levers for CHWs, such as the recent preventive service rule change (440.130), managed care contracting, and health homes.
