James Skibbe, the State of Indiana Eligibility Manager for the Starke County office of the Division of Family Resources, will present an upcoming program entitled “Understanding the Spenddown.”

Persons on Medicaid have a difficult time understanding the concept and reasoning behind the spenddown that is required before Medicaid funding can be used to meet physician or hospital expenses.

A workshop at Community Services of Starke County in Knox will be given by Mr. Skibbe to explain the Medicaid program, spenddown and other questions participants may have.

A noontime lunch will be served. Call (574) 772-7070 by March 17th to reserve a meal. A $2.00 donation is requested for the meal.
