Medicaid is an “entitlement.” This means that if you meet the eligibility requirements, you have a right to services under the program when they are medically necessary. The state cannot deny, reduce, or take away your benefits without “due process,” which means they need to send you a legally sufficient notice — and give you an opportunity to say why you should be able to get those benefits. But sometimes Medicaid gets it wrong.
When Medicaid rejects medically-necessary services for your child, time is of the essence and it’s hard to know where to begin. Co-hosted with Family Voices Colorado on November 16, 2021, this webinar will help you understand:
– what is considered a “Legally Sufficient Notice”
– what the information on your notice means
– what to consider when deciding whether to appeal
– how to file an appeal (and when!)
– and where you can turn for help.
