Workgroup for Duals Brings Together Patients, Caregivers, and Advocates

The Medicare Rights Center’s Coalition to Protect the Rights of New York’s Dually Eligible (CPRNYDE) works to ensure that the needs of people with both Medicare and Medicaid are at the center of policymaking efforts and their voices are heard. One way we do this is through our Workgroup for People with Medicare and Medicaid.

The Workgroup for People with Medicare and Medicaid Attend the Putting Care at the Center Conference

The Medicare Rights Center’s Coalition to Protect the Rights of New York’s Dually Eligible (CPRNYDE) works to ensure that the needs of people with Medicare and Medicaid are at the center of policymaking efforts and that their voices are heard. One way we do this is through our Workgroup for People with Medicare and Medicaid. This workgroup is comprised of over thirty individuals across New York State, most of whom have long-term care needs and chronic health conditions.

I recently had the privilege of attending the Putting Care at the Center Conference, the inaugural conference of the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs (National Center), along with one of our passionate and dedicated workgroup members, Ms. Hutchinson. Ms. Hutchinson and I were recipients of a grant from the National Center, and we are grateful we were able to attend the conference in Philadelphia.
