Watch: It’s Your Rights! What Family Caregivers Should Know About the New Medicaid Rules for Adult Developmental Services.

October 9, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Watch the recording for “It’s Your Rights! What Family Caregivers Should Know About the New Medicaid Rules for Adult Developmental Services.”

If you are unable to attend, you can still register and we’ll send you a link to the recording of the workshop which you can watch on your own time.

Last March, new federal requirements took effect for people receiving Medicaid-funded home and community based services. These impact adults receiving developmental disability services in certain settings, including group homes and shared living arrangements. The rules are designed to ensure that people living in these settings have privacy, autonomy, and full access to the community.

This presentation is intended for family caregivers who currently – or may some day – have a son or daughter living in this type of setting. A expert in Medicaid policy, Ms. Murphy will provide helpful background for navigating the complex world of adult services.
