There is growing recognition of the value of coordinating health care, affordable housing, and social services for people with complex health needs and histories of housing instability, including people experiencing homelessness and those leaving prisons and jails. Increasingly there is interest across hospitals, managed care organizations, local governments, public housing authorities, social service providers, state Medicaid agencies, and state housing entities to work together to efficiently and effectively meet the needs of vulnerable populations. This is raising unique issues at the intersection of housing, health policy, and financing.
At the same time, a new administration is in place and setting new priorities for expanding access to health and housing, including ensuring approaches are creating equitable access. This webinar will provide an overview of the current health care and housing policy landscape, including identifying key issues that health and housing organizations can mobilize to support, and the status of legislative issues that are currently being considered by the Administration and Congress.
- Understand the current federal-state policy landscape at the intersection of health and housing
- Learn how Medicaid can be maximized to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness and what other policy solutions are needed to address Medicaid ‘gaps’
- Identify key policy and/or legislative proposals being prioritized by advocates and those being advanced by the administration and Congress
