This session will help parents understand the changes in health care systems and eligibility when youth turn age 18.  Learn about systems your child may access that you haven’t used before, or how the rules and enrollment may change in public systems you already use.  We will cover basic information about health care decision making, and how to evaluate if you need guardianship or power of attorney to assist your young adult with the management of their health and benefits. We will also discuss self-advocacy and general health care issues.

Child care is not available at this event, but parents who need child care to attend may apply for a scholarship to support their child care expense. Please request a claim form when you register. A check will be issued at the conclusion of the training.

Be sure to mark your calendar today!
