The 2010 Medicare Handbook is the indispensable resource you need to clearly understand - and be able to advise on - Medicare's confusing rules and regulations. It has been prepared by an outstanding team of experts from the Center for Medicare Advocacy, Inc., a private, non-profit organization devoted to helping elders and people with disabilities obtain necessary health care. These experienced attorneys and health care professionals address - from the beneficiary's perspective - issues you need to master to provide effective planning advice or advocacy services, including:

  • Medicare eligibility rules and enrollment requirements
  • Medicare covered services, deductibles, and co-payments
  • Co-insurance, premiums, penalties
  • Coverage criteria for each of the programs
  • Problem areas of concern for the advocate
  • Grievance and appeals procedures

For each topic, you'll find an extensive selection of case citations, checklists, worksheets, and other practice tools designed to assist in obtaining coverage for clients, while minimizing research and drafting time.

The 2010 Edition includes:

  • Understanding the Medicare Secondary Payer Program (MSP)
  • Understanding the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Acquisition Program
  • Improvements to coverage of preventive services
