Medicare & Medicaid Resources

Medicare and Medicaid services can be confusing, no matter what stage you may be at in your caregiving journey. As we prepare for next week’s webinar, ‘Medicare 2017 & What it Means for You!,’ it is important to highlight past presentations to help set the stage for the training. Think of these past presentations as a “refresher course,” before learning about changes to the Medicare system that will take affect this year.

Our MFLN Military Caregiving concentration has several trainings geared to provide basic educational information related to Medicare and Medicaid for providers and family caregivers. In addition to increasing your knowledge of the healthcare insurance programs, the trainings also offer certificates of completion for service providers.
