Topic: 2021 Oregon Long Term Care Medicaid Changes
There have been big changes to the Medicaid application process this year. These include a new way for applicants to apply for services and new documents to fill out.

In addition to the changes, Meredith will also review the application process, qualification criteria, and planning techniques.
