In this webinar, we will teach you how to effectively access the health and mental health benefits for children that are provided by Maryland Medical Assistance (Medicaid). The goals of this training are for you to:

  • Learn how the Medical Assistance (or Medicaid) Program is organized and where to go to get help
  • Learn what services are covered and not covered by Medicaid
  • Know the steps to access mental health services and various physical health care services
  • Understand the role of different governmental agencies, health plans, and contractors
  • Know when you need a referral from the primary care physician or mental health professional to access services
  • Learn what to do when a service is denied, delayed, or not available
  • Understand the legal rights that foster children have as Medicaid recipients
  • Know what EPSDT means and what a strong entitlement children have to receive the health care services that treating professionals recommend for them
