Block Grants and
Medicaid Waivers
 
The Autism Society of the Bluegrass is sponsoring an informational meeting on Kentucky Medicaid Waivers. Stella Beard and Katie Bentley will join us to provide general information on Block Grants, proposed changes to the ACA (Affordable Care Act) and information about the proposed AHCA (American Health Care Act), and what the changes could mean for Kentucky.  We will also discuss specifically what you can do as a Medicaid Waiver Participant to protect the services you receive.
 
Stella Beard is the mother of a young man who receives a Kentucky Medicaid Waiver. In addition, she is the Executive Director of The Arc of Kentucky.
 
Katie Bentley is the mother of two children with disabilities as well the Public Policy Coordinator for the Commonwealth Council on Developmental Disabilities.  She has been in the Capitol this session and is also a great resource for the changes occurring! Both ladies are advocates on a personal and professional level.
