New York, NY—The Medicare Rights Center is marking the first anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with a free webinar, Health Reform and Medicare. Set for Tuesday, March 22 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m., Eastern Time, the webinar has already reached capacity due to popular demand. Fortunately, a link to the recording will be available on www.medicarerights.org shortly after the event ends.
“We are thrilled at the overwhelming response to our webinar,” said Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center. “It just goes to show that people crave accurate, unbiased information about how health reform impacts them. As implementation of health reform unfolds, we at Medicare Rights will continue to serve as a go-to source for such information.”
This live online session will feature Joe Baker, who will cover a wide array of Medicare changes, including:
- the ACA and the Medicare Part D prescription benefit;
- expansion of Medicare-covered services;
- long-term care services and supports; and
- Medicare private health plans (Medicare Advantage).
Participants in the live session will also be able to submit questions to Mr. Baker, who will provide as many answers as possible in the time allotted.
