The Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP) is pleased to offer series of upcoming webinars focusing on various Medicaid-related topics. During each session, experts grom PHLP will share what advocates and providers need to know about the unwinding of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE).
April 1, 2023 marks both the beginning of Pennsylvania’s continuous coverage public health emergency (PHE) “unwinding” and the launch of Workers with Job Success, a new Medicaid (Medical Assistance) coverage category.
This webinar will start with an in-depth review of Medical Assistance for Workers with Disabilities (MAWD), an underused Medicaid coverage category that pairs high income and resource limits with flexible program requirements. The training will then cover the new Workers with Job Security category, which is available to individuals who have been on MAWD for at least a year and whose income exceeds the MAWD limit. Though open to all, this session is intended for legal services staff and other advocates who have some familiarity with Medicaid eligibility rules.
