On October 16, 2014, the Gero-Ed Center co-hosted a webinar on the Certified Application Counselor (CAC) program with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), and the Society for Social Work Leadership in Healthcare (SSWLHC). CACs are volunteers who enroll people in the Health Insurance Marketplace, and social workers with CAC training are needed to make the next ACA open enrollment period (11/15/14 to 2/15/15) a success. This webinar featured social workers practitioners and educators who shared their enrollment experiences and best practices for helping people connect with health insurance coverage. Step-by-step instructions on how to become a CAC were also provided by CMS representatives. Learn more here.
