As part of its commitment to supporting New England Health and Human Service agencies, NESCSO is sponsoring this two-day training opportunity in partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The training will be provided by experts in the field from CMS and three of our region’s public universities: the University of Massachusetts Medical School; the University of Southern Maine; and the University of New Hampshire.
Audience: The training is open to State program executives, managers, attorneys, analysts, and other staff from Health and Human Services agencies including Medicaid, Elder Services and Developmental Disabilities Services that are involved in policy development and operations for Medicaid-funded long-term care.
Curriculum: Over the course of the training, university and CMS experts will deliver content and facilitate discussions related to Medicaid long-term services and supports including eligibility, services, and delivery systems. For the purposes of the training, LTSS refers to the diverse range of Medicaid-funded services provided to support the well-being of people across the whole continuum of care from community-based interventions to institutional care. This training will include the opportunity for participants to have state-specific issues addressed by the experts as well as ample time for information sharing between states.
Sponsorship: NESCSO will cover travel and lodging expenses for up to 5 staff from each state to attend the training.
Location and Timing: The training will be held beginning at 10:00 a.m. on June 14th and running through to 3:30 p.m. on June 15th. The training will be at the Hilton Garden Inn Worcester, 35 Major Taylor Blvd., Worcester, MA 01608. Driving Directions
