Workshop summarizes Medicare changes for COVID-19

medicare and covid19 workshop

Since the pandemic began, healthcare systems around the world have been challenged in unimaginable ways. Here at home, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have responded on a seemingly daily basis with new or revised guidance to address emerging needs across the country. The rapid changes in health care can be overwhelming for everyone during this difficult time, especially for older adults and people with chronic conditions who are receiving Medicare benefits. 


Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources will host one-hour workshops for providers and professionals to learn about the changes to Medicare that have been introduced. The workshops will provide an overview of Medicare updates, enrollment options, telehealth, testing and more. This virtual experience will be offered twice this month, both online and by telephone:
