We are meeting tonight at 6 pm to chat about education and inclusive workforce development bills that failed during the legislative session as well as ideas related to tomorrow’s meeting on the changes to Nevada Medicaid.  If you would like to join us, RSVP: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYpf-mvrTgtG9aUf20aJAsn6BnpV_RtauTQ

Tomorrow’s meeting with DuAne L. Young, Deputy Administrator for NV Medicaid, will cover changes to Nevada Medicaid that happened during the pandemic and changes we can expect now that the legislative session has ended.  One thing I will be asking is related to telehealth. 

Nevada belongs to a compact that allows health care professionals to work not only in their own state but also across state lines in other compact states. This could be a real workforce game changer if Nevadans become mental and behavioral health professionals and then provide some services through telehealth in other states.
