National Health Law Program (NHeLP) Protect Medicaid Webinar Series

Defending Medicaid

Medicaid's guaranteed-enrollment for those who meet eligibilityrequirements makes the program vulnerable to attacks at both the federal and state level. NHeLP actively defends Medicaid against these threats, protects the rights of beneficiaries to receive these services, to which they are legally entitled and works to make sure that states meet their obligations under the Medicaid Act.

Proposals to drastically cut federal Medicaid spending through per capita caps and block grants would fundamentally alter and undermine Medicaid. NHeLP's Protect Medicaid webinar series examines the harmful impact of these proposals on key features of the Medicaid program, including: services and benefits geared for vulnerable populations; affordability and cost sharing protections; advances under the ACA's low income adult expansion; and consumer protections and due process guarantees.
