Justice Explained: Training medical professionals on public benefits

Part of our mission is to educate on access to healthcare. Last week, we conducted a training in State College, Pa. for more than 70 medical professionals.

The 4.5-hour training was attended by physicians, psychologists, nurses, medical case managers, counselors, and social workers from around the state and included information on Medical Assistance, Medicare, the Special Pharmaceuticals Benefits Program (SPBP), and Social Security disability programs.

The audience left better prepared to navigate the public benefits and insurance systems to ensure the best possible health outcomes for their patients.
