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.
