Last October, the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation of Harvard Law School (CHLPI) and the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR) launched Hepatitis C: The State of Medicaid Access. This project includes a report detailing hepatitis C treatment access restrictions (liver damage, sobriety, and prescriber limitations) in all state Medicaid programs, including traditional fee-for- service and managed care. Report cards were also issued, grading each state on its commitment to access. All of these materials can be found at stateofhepc.org. Join us on Thursday, June 28, 2018 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Eastern for a Hepatitis C: The State of Medicaid Access webinar. CHLPI and NVHR will present highlights from the report, including methodology, key findings, and recent updates to state Medicaid policy since the launch of the project. We will discuss the report cards – how we determined grades, how states can change their grade, and how advocates can use them in their efforts. We will also have time for questions and to hear how advocates have used (or plan to use) the materials.
