Free New CE Webinar “The Ethics of Public Benefits: Medicaid, Medicare and Veterans Benefits.” (ethics)
August 16, 2022 | 12:00 pm-1:00 pm ET
Join Miles Hurley, JD, CELA, and Megan Rosner, LMSW as they present “The Ethics of Public Benefits: Medicaid, Medicare and Veterans Benefits.” (ethics). Healthcare providers are regulated by ethical codes of professional behavior. Practitioners must navigate the competing needs of their patients, complex regulations governing the cost of long-term care, and their codes of ethics. When tasked with telling a family their loved one requires long-term care, practitioners must have a basic knowledge of public benefit programs so they may connect families to resources and programs that can pay for the needed care. They can even provide information about accessing programs while preserving assets for spouses or supplemental needs. Is it wrong to access public benefits? This CE explores the ethics of public benefit programs that pay for long-term care such as Nursing Home Medicaid and Veteran Benefits.
