Compliance Manager, Melissa Groves, speaks at 28th Annual Elder Law Forum

Compliance Manager, Melissa Groves, spoke at the 28th Annual Elder Law Forum, hosted by Pierro, Connor and Strauss. Melissa spoke to the New York Independent Assessor process, changes in Medicaid eligibility rules, and why consumer directed personal assistance (CDPA) is needed now more than ever. CDChoices is proud to be part of the strategy when it comes to securing Medicaid home care in the face of new challenges. Melissa tackles a real case study, joined by leaders from across the Capital Region. Through the experience of “Stanley,” you’ll learn strategies that protect assets and income to qualify for Community Medicaid, allow recipients to hire and manage their home care aides, and use fair hearings and appeals to advocate for more hours of care at home.
