Webinar: Hepatitis C: The State of Medicaid Access

June 28, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Last October, the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR) and the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School (CHLPI) launched Hepatitis C: The State of Medicaid AccessThis project includes a report detailing hepatitis C treatment access restrictions (liver damage, sobriety, and prescriber limitations) in all state Medicaid programs, including traditional fee-for-service and managed care. Report cards were also issued, grading each state on its commitment to access. All of these materials can be found at stateofhepc.org.

In this webinar, CHLPI and NVHR will present highlights from the report, including methodology, key findings, and recent updates to state Medicaid policy since the launch of the project. The presenters will discuss the report cards – how they determined grades, how states can change their grade, and how advocates can use them in their efforts. There will also be time to ask questions and hear how advocates have used (or plan to use) the materials.
