Pathways to Health Literacy and Health Care Utilization: A Critical Next Step for the Newly Eligible Pre-release Population

Wednesday Oct 19, 2016 - 02:00pm to 03:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

This 2:00 p.m. ET webinar notes that justice-involved populations are starting to reap the benefits of expanded access to health coverage and care for both physical and behavioral health conditions. Recent studies confirm the advantages that health and justice policy makers have predicted since health reform began. Many states and jurisdictions have successfully implemented pathways to enrollment upon release for eligible individuals. However, the real impact these opportunities have on re-entry success and rehabilitation depends on effectively identifying those eligible for coverage, educating and informing them about using their benefits, and helping them navigate the complexities of the health care system. This webinar discusses strategies and resources that promote health and insurance literacy and help newly covered individuals overcome the barriers to utilization they experience. It will focus on how justice professionals can leverage a number of dedicated resources and the supports available to re-entering individuals to help them access appropriate health care services.
