Medicare is the federal health insurance program for adults over age 65 and other qualified individuals. While the program basics remain virtually unchanged year-to-year, a new year always brings a few tweaks to the program. This session will provide a brief update to the “Back to Basics: Medicare” session provided January 27, 2016 with changes to the program for 2017. The session will also provide a broad overview of the Medicare program’s coordination of benefits with other programs such as Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance, TRICARE for Life and VA Benefits, among others.
