This presentation will begin with a brief overview of the Arc of New Jersey and its programs and services. We will then address many important SSI and Medicaid issues that families may not be aware of, such as:

  • What happens to SSI and Medicaid when the parent of an individual with I/DD retires, or becomes disabled, or passes away?
  •  What are the exceptions to DDD’s requirement on having Medicaid?
  • What are ABLE Accounts, and how can these accounts be helpful?
  • What are PPP services and what is the process to access those services?
  •  What can families do if they are unable to locate a physician, dentist, or behavioral health provider within their child’s Medicaid HMO network?
  •  What is a D-SNP and is it helpful for your child who has both Medicare and Medicaid?
