Friday, March 5, 2021 

​The coronavirus pandemic is a global crisis that may have greater implications for people who use LTSS as they are particularly susceptible to severe illness or death caused by COVID-19. As the primary payer of LTSS for millions of Americans, Medicaid is an important player in state COVID-19 responses for vulnerable populations. This webinar includes state policy options for legislators seeking to support access to LTSS and keep older adults and people with disabilities safe during public health emergencies such as COVID-19. ​
