Helping Clients Understand Their Medicare Benefits

A recent study indicated that more than 90 percent of Medicare beneficiaries do not understand the system and the benefits and coverage it provides them. As healthcare professionals, we often interface with senior clients who are ill, need care and treatment, but are often reluctant to accept care until they know what it will cost them in dollars and cents first. In this interactive course, we will bring clarity to a complex system and clearly define all parts of coverages, as well as eligibility, costs, system structure (deductibles, copays, etc.), and various coverage options available beyond original Medicare that will help you, the healthcare provider, assist your clients to navigate their healthcare needs and costs so they can better access what they need and deserve.

RNs, LPNs, social workers, LPCs, LCPCs, psychologists, registered dietitians, and respiratory therapists will earn 3 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 3 (A) hours. Approval is pending for PTs and OTs.

Learning Objectives:

• Clearly define Medicare Parts A, B, C and D – what they cover and what they don’t
• Identify various enrollment periods and eligibility
• Learn Medicare costs – both monthly and those incurred as one accesses benefits $45 / 1 session
