Back to Basics: Medicare

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the largest health payer in the United States, covering almost 90 million Americans. Medicare, the federal health insurance program for adults over age 65 and other qualified individuals, accounts for more than 48 million of those Americans through expenditures of more than $545 billion. But what is Medicare? How does it work? What should helping professionals and caregivers know about the program? This session will provide a broad overview of the Medicare program’s Parts A and B as well as introduce the CMS National Training Program as a resource for further training and information.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
