Improving Medicaid Buy-In Programs for Workers with Disabilities

This event has passed.

As a result of the Balanced Budget Act and the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act, workers with disabilities are now able to retain Medicaid coverage when their earnings would otherwise result in the loss of coverage. Over the past year, the Bipartisan Policy Center has engaged stakeholders to identify ways to improve these programs.

Join us on Wednesday, January 27 for the release of a new report and panel discussion on BPC’s recommendations to improve Medicaid buy-in programs and to expand opportunities for workers with disabilities.
