Medicaid can make a difference in the financing of services for residents of permanent supportive housing. In today’s changing health care landscape, supportive housing providers need to stay current about new benefits and how to get clients enrolled. But that is not all – homeless assistance providers can play a key role in transforming local safety nets to be more person-centered, service-integrated, and resource-wise. This session will focus on new health care benefits,enrollment programs, and navigation strategies.
