Presented by the Center for Medicare Advocacy. A federal ruling now gives increased access to Medicare, learn about it here.
The Center for Medicare Advocacy recently announced a settlement of the landmark case, Jimmo v. Sebelius. The settlement effectively ends the “improvement standard”, an illegal practice in which thousands of people with chronic or stable conditions were denied Medicare coverage if they were not determined to be “improving”.
In order to fully explain the case and its implications, The Center for Medicare Advocacy is hosting a webinar on December 12.
Brief history and status of Jimmo;
