Medicare: An In-Depth Look

Join us for a FREE live webinar as part of the Triage Cancer Webinar Series, that will explain the Medicare system, including the different “Parts,” eligibility, costs, financial assistance, supplemental coverage, and open enrollment.

Presented by Monica Bryant, Esq.

Social workers and nurses in attendance will walk away with a better understanding of Medicare as a health insurance option for their patients. Furthermore, social workers and nurses are often called upon to help their patients navigate making health insurance-related decisions, as well as navigating the appeals process and financial assistance options. This webinar will provide social workers, nurses, and other types of health care professionals with a foundation to help patients make those decisions and provide appropriate referrals.  This program is appropriate for all learner levels.
