The Center for Medicare Advocacy is partnering with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation to present the upcoming webinar: Medicare for People with Paralysis on October 2, 2019, from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. The foundation manages ACL’s Paralysis Resource Center.

Understanding Medicare is important to those who currently qualify for health coverage through Medicare, or may qualify in the future. This webinar includes information on eligibility, enrollment, and coverage – with a special emphasis on home health care and durable medical equipment including related laws, regulations, policies, and practical tips to assist people living with paralysis to access home- and community-based Medicare coverage. We will also discuss important factors in choosing between traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage. 

Presented by Center for Medicare Advocacy Executive Director, Attorney Judith Stein, and Associate Director, Attorney Kathy Holt.

If you are unable to make the October 2 webinar, they will have a rebroadcast with live Q&A on Thursday, November 7, 2019, at 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM
