Legal Services Access to all Medicaid Beneficiaries

Anthem has launched a pilot project in conjunction with Indiana Legal Services to fund legal assistance to all Medicaid beneficiaries in a limited geographic area.  This is worth watching. Medical-Legal partnerships, often funded in whole or in part by providers, have been  around for a few decades, helping those individuals known to the partnership's providers in need of legal assistance, quite often with Medicaid eligibility.  You can see that the breadth of the assistance offered is much wider in this pilot project: housing, income support, access to addiction services, etc.

Of course, no program funded by an insurer is likely to assist in a claim against the insurer, say: an appeal of a denial of benefits, or is it?
