Medicaid Advocacy: The Contested Case from Application to Appeal

Program Time
5.0 Hours

Presented by the Elder Law Section

About the Program
The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 and the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) regulations have created many ambiguities in Medicaid law. This seminar will prepare attendees to test the limits of the new law and regulations from application to appeal. Experienced practitioners will discuss issues that raise “red flags” in a Medicaid application, as well as handling the initial client meeting and preparing the Medicaid application for the contested case. A panel of attorneys will conduct a mock Fair Hearing so attendees learn how to effectively present their case before the DSS. Speakers will clarify the law and procedure of DSS Fair Hearings, due process concerns regarding DSS Fair Hearings, and the law and procedure of administrative appeals to superior court.
