Join the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) for “Emerging Respite Care Strategies in Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Waivers.”
Family caregivers play an important role in caring for Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver participants. Respite care is a service delivered in the home or a facility-based setting to provide short-term relief for caregivers. Although most states offer respite through Medicaid, varied program policies and payment rates among states greatly affect caregivers’ access to high quality respite services.
Participants will learn about:
- Key takeaways from a new NASHP report that explores emerging respite care strategies within Medicaid HCBS waivers serving older adults and adults with physical disabilities.
- Respite care policies in Kentucky and Virginia that increase service access within their states, with a particular focus on how other states can replicate.
