Advanced Training on Medicare Part B
When: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.
Beneficiaries and advocates face challenges navigating the benefits covered under Medicare Part B and understanding the basics of accessing these benefits.
This webcast will look at three areas that can often cause confusion and will provide advice on how to address common problems:
- Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN): What is it and what options do clients have when faced with an unexpected bill after signing an ABN?
- Part B Drugs: What drugs are covered by Part B and what payments are required?
- Durable Medical Equipment: For 2019 and 2020, competitive bidding has been suspended for all DME except insulin supplies. What does this mean for your client’s access to suppliers?
Presenter: Georgia Burke, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
NOTE: This is an advanced training and assumes participants have a general understanding of Medicare benefits. Please see NCLER's Health Training curriculum for more information on the Legal Basics of Medicare Parts A, B, and C.
