Policy Brief: Medicare to 26 for Former Foster Youth

We are pleased to share a new policy brief by our partner First Focus on Medicaid access for youth formerly in foster care. This brief provides an overview of the mandatory Medicaid coverage for former foster youth under the Affordable Care Act and explains issues regarding the “state option” around portability of coverage for former foster youth that aged out of care in another state.
Read the executive summary or the full policy brief from First Focus, through its State Policy Advocacy Reform Center.

National CASA would like to hear more from you about any challenges, issues, or concerns you have faced in working with youth on this issue.
