Medicaid – The Basics
Join Outreach Education Liaison Erika Swanson for an overview of Medicaid with a focus on how to access long-term services and supports. We will review Medicaid benefit basics, provide an overview of available Medicaid supports and services, discuss the family caregiving model in Colorado, and more.
Erika Swanson, Outreach Education Liaison, understands the joy and heartbreak of raising a special needs child. Her son Jackson was a shining light to her even after he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at four months old. Erika relocated to Colorado from Maryland after hearing about the family caregiver program where she was trained and certified by PASCO as a Family CNA to provide the best care possible for her son. Jackson enjoyed many activities including four-wheeling, trips to the mountains, and hanging out with his cousins. Sadly, Jackson unexpectedly passed away in May of 2015 at the age of 11, and Erika’s world changed forever. With her personal experience as a Family CNA and understanding of the difficulties in navigating a complex Medicaid system as well as accessing supports and resources, Erika decided to take her experience and knowledge to help other families through a supportive, professional role.
