Stronger, Longer: Muscle Mass and Aging WEBINAR | NextAvenue

11AM-12PM | FREE Registration

It is estimated that most adults will lose about 30 percent of muscle mass over the course of our lifetime. Sarcopenia, or the decline of skeletal muscle tissue with age, is one of the most important causes of functional decline and loss of independence in older adults.

For some, age-related muscle loss leads to difficulty walking, lifting objects, and, ultimately, living independently. For others, diseases like advanced cancer further aggravate the problem of muscle wasting, a condition called cachexia.

Kicking off the National Institute on Aging’s Go4Life Month, the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), Go4Life and PBS Next Avenue present a free webinar, Stronger, Longer: Muscle Mass and Aging.

The one-hour webinar will share the latest research on sarcopenia and tips for what you can do to sustain muscle as you grow older.

RSVP DEADLINE is September 24th!

Medicaid Retroactive Coverage: What's at Stake for Older Adults When States Eliminate this Protection? | Justice in Aging | Issue Brief

11AM-12PM PDT | FREE Registration

Medicaid retroactive coverage is an important financial protection that helps ensure prompt access to care for low-income, uninsured, and underinsured older adults and families. By authorizing states to provide payment for care and services that an individual received up to three months prior to applying for Medicaid, the policy helps protect people who cannot otherwise afford coverage—especially older adults—from crushing medical debt. Retroactive Medicaid coverage is an especially critical protection for people experiencing health emergencies, needing long-term services and supports (LTSS) following an acute illness, or facing other unexpected high-cost health care needs. The policy also relieves uncompensated care burdens on providers. Despite the immense value retroactive Medicaid coverage provides, several states have received federal permission to eliminate this protection.

This webinar— Medicaid Retroactive Coverage: What's at Stake for Older Adults When States Eliminate this Protection? sponsored by Justice and Aging and the AARP Public Policy Institute—will highlight key findings from a new Justice in Aging issue brief on Medicaid retroactive coverage. Experts will discuss a survey of states that have eliminated retroactive coverage and the implications for older adults, families, and providers.

Who should participate:
Aging and legal advocates, policymakers, and others wanting to learn more about how waiving Medicaid retroactive coverage impacts older adults, their families, and providers.

Presenters:
Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging
Edem Hado, Policy Research Senior Analyst, AARP Public Policy Institute

Moderator:
Amber Christ, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
