Have a Question: Submit your questions for Disability and Aging: Medicare, Medicaid, and Benefits Enrollment Assistance

Each day over 10,000 individuals become eligible for Medicare due to age or disability. Learning about what Medicare covers and navigating the Medicare enrollment process can be challenging. During this episode, we’ll provide an overview of the parts of Medicare, when and how someone can enroll, and then discuss what services are and are not covered under Medicare. Then we’ll delve a little deeper and look at ways your clients can apply for assistance covering their Medicare costs, and how Medicare coordinates with other coverage, like Medicaid. Finally, you’ll learn where to go in your community to help your residents with complex Medicare questions.
