Medicaid Buy-In for Workers with Disabilities programs allow individuals with disabilities to work, increase their earnings, and retain access to Medicaid’s unique services that support independent living. Our first report, released in January 2021, addressed barriers to these programs for Medicaid beneficiaries with disabilities who want to work. Now, BPC builds on that work with new federal policy recommendations that will encourage more states to cover or optimize their coverage of the MBI for Workers with Disabilities eligibility groups.
Please join BPC and a panel of experts and stakeholders to discuss the value of Medicaid Buy-In for Workers with Disabilities programs, implementation challenges, and BPC’s policy recommendations to improve opportunities for workers with disabilities.
