Millions of people who need in-home care cannot afford to pay for it. In addition to costs, confusing eligibility processes and delayed service are barriers to receiving care. Health care personnel need to know facts and resources for payment and services for populations in home, facility, and community settings. 

Additionally, 12 million people over the age of 60 and many other people in home or community-based care have substance use disorders. Health care personnel need to know evidence-based strategies for substance use prevention and management in these settings.

This one-day conference will highlight emerging trends in home and community-based care. Participants will learn from local, state, and national experts on topics such as Medicare Advantage, dual eligibility, and eligibility pathways for home-based care, including Medicaid waiver options. They will also learn from substance use disorder experts about prevention and management of overdoses, medication assisted treatment, and withdrawal, and public health implications of substance use in home and community-based settings.
