ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Approximately 9 million low-income seniors and younger persons with disabilities are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid (often referred to as duals). Many states are pursuing efforts to better coordinate care and potentially lower costs for this population.

    Earlier this year, 15 states were awarded design contracts of up to $1 million each to develop service delivery and payment models that integrate care. More broadly, 37 states and the District of Columbia have submitted letters of intent to pursue opportunities for integration announced by CMS in July.

    This webinar will provide a basic overview of the duals population, activity within states, opportunities and concerns, and stakeholder involvement.

    Speakers:

    Edo Banach, CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office

    Hilary Dalin, NCOA

    Kevin Prindiville, National Senior Citizens Law Center

    Mary Lou Breslin, Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund

    This webinar is sponsored by the Friday Morning Collaborative, a coalition of national aging and disability organizations working together to protect and strengthen Medicaid home and community based services. With support from The SCAN Foundation, the coalition is hosting ongoing webinars to provide information and resources to state advocates.
