Elder Law Committee

Dear Committee Members:

It was suggested during our Zoom meeting April 28 that it may be beneficial for the committee to bring in a speaker from the Erie County Department of Social Services to discuss how the impending Medicaid changes, effective October 1, 2020 will be handled. Bonnie McLaughlin graciously agreed to coordinate a connection, and Michelle Schaffer, Director of Medicaid Long-Term Care has agreed to come speak. She would like to be sent a list of questions in advance so she can prepare.

If you have specific questions you would like to ask her at our next meeting in May, please send them to me no later than May 11.

The next meeting of the Elder Law Committee is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 12:15PM via Zoom Web Conferencing. Please see details below to participate and attached for some helpful tips on using the Zoom platform. If you need assistance, please contact Daniel Ortega at dortega@eriebar.org

Please email me your questions at ksarama@elderjusticeny.org no later than May 11 so that we can give Ms. Schaffer a full week to prepare.

Be well,
