Legal Basics: Dual Eligible Older Adults

When: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Dual eligible individuals are low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. On average, dual eligibles have more chronic conditions and higher health needs than other Medicare beneficiaries, yet they face barriers to accessing care because of their enrollment in two separate health insurance programs. Almost half of the dual eligible population are people of color, and dual eligibles are more likely to be women. Recent initiatives in a number of states have changed the way that many dual eligibles receive their healthcare.  

This Legal Basics webcast will cover the following: 

  • Provide an overview of the Medicare and Medicaid programs;
  • Highlight particular characteristics of the dual eligible population;
  • Review the common barriers dual eligibles face in accessing care; and
  • Provide an update on integrated programs that serve dual eligible individuals.


  • Amber Christ, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
  • Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging  

The webcast will be accompanied by a detailed Chapter Summary with additional information.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar's chat box shortly before the webcast start time. 

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.

The webcast will take place on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.
