New Medicaid Website
A new website was recently created to offer assistance on the Medicaid changes in each state. The website is known as the “Medicaid Reference Desk.” It has received support from the federal government.
“This website helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and others access and gain knowledge about Medicaid, which is an essential lifeline for millions of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families,” said Peter Berns, CEO of the Arc.
The website highlights a glossary of common Medicaid related terms. There is also a “Frequently Asked Questions” section. The main purpose of the Reference Desk is to guide support systems in dealing with the Medicaid procedures.
Medicaid Reference Desk was created by staff at the Arc. The US Department of Health and Human Services funded the site. It is intended to be a one-stop service guide for Medicaid state benefits.
