This summer, The Chronicle of Social Change is offering a series of deep-dive webinars on the approved services under the Family First Prevention Services Act in three separate categories: parenting, substance abuse and mental health services. Here’s everything you need to know about the next session in the series. 

TITLE: When Entitlements Collide: How Medicaid Affects the Family First Act

WEBINAR DATE: August 19, 2019

TIME: 10 a.m. PST/ 1 p.m. EST

With the Family First Prevention Services Act set to take effect in October, there are still some lingering questions about how the complex federal mandate will play out. No issue is generating more interest and angst than the way the new law interacts with Medicaid, the massive federal and state partnership that provides physical and mental health services to millions of low-income Americans. 

We’ll discuss how Family First’s “payer of last resort” status impacts use of the law’s prevention services; how the law might expose challenges in funding residential health services; and take as many questions as possible!

Special Guests

  • Heather Baker, Manager of Human Services for Public Consulting Group
  • Pat Johnston, Director of Public Policy, National Association for Children’s Behavioral Health

This webinar will be moderated by The Chronicle‘s Editor-in-Chief John Kelly.
