Free Webinar: Health Care Rights for Older Adults During COVID-19

Older adults and people with disabilities are one of the populations most susceptible to both COVID-19 and the effects of related physical distancing mandates. Many advocates and other service providers working with older adults may have questions about the rights of older adults and the impact of COVID-19 and related relief measures on healthcare.

This free webinar, co-organized by Justice in Aging and California Health Advocates Senior Medicare Patrol, will discuss health care rights under Medicare and Medi-Cal for older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, including increased flexibilities and requirements for Medicare Advantage, Part D and Cal MediConnect plans, the moratorium on Medi-Cal negative actions, special enrollment periods under Medicare, the impact of relief efforts on Medi-Cal benefits, guaranteed issue events for Medigap, and more.

Who should participate:
Legal services attorneys and aging and disability service providers, including HICAP staff and volunteers.

Presenters:
Denny Chan, Justice in Aging
Bonnie Burns, California Health Advocates

The webinar took place on Thursday, May 28, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PT.
