Presented by Linda Wolford, MS, and Kaitlin Desselle, MS, from Strategic Diversity Initiatives (SDI), and Mai Thor, co-facilitator and disability justice advocate. Many organizations are relatively new to understanding “disability” as an equity and diversity issue. People with disabilities often face physical, programmatic, informational – and especially – attitudinal barriers that limit their opportunities and access. In this workshop, Wolford, Desselle and Thor address the specific stereotypes and myths that surround disability. They explore what it means to act as an ally in various contexts, thus increasing access for all.
The Elderly Waiver (EW) program is a federal Medicaid waiver program that funds home and community-based services for people 65 and older who are eligible for Medical Assistance (MA), require the level of care provided in a nursing home and choose to live in a community with services.

UCare provides annual training on our Model of Care for Dual Eligible Special Needs (D-SNP) and Institutional Special Needs (I-SNP) Plans. The Model of Care training gives an overview of UCare's SNP population, network and UCare's approach to supporting members. UCare’s SNP members face a host of unique challenges and barriers to get the care they need. UCare's Special Needs Plans are designed with a unique set of benefits and services to help reduce barriers and assist members in managing their care. The training will help you make connections between the population and benefits to assist in improving member outcomes.
