Making Sense of Medicare

by James P. Lampertius

Understanding Medicare, its relationship to other payment systems (i.e. Medicaid, Department of Veterans Affairs Benefits, private health insurance), and its relationship within the various care systems (i.e. hospital, home care, inpatient rehabilitation center, nursing home care) can make you a more effective advocate on behalf of your elderly or special needs client. This Seminar is intended to help you to “issue spot” if you have a client on Medicare who is working his or her way through the health care system. It is intended to provide nuts-and-bolts, practical tips on how Medicare works; extensive materials relative to the more detailed workings of Medicare are included at the end of these materials.

To be an effective advocate for the elderly, persons with disabilities, and their representatives within the Medicare system, an understanding of the evolution of the Medicare program is crucial.
