Millions of Americans – including thousands in YOUR community – now have the health insurance coverage they need, but could not afford before. This includes people with new private plans, individuals on Medicaid, kids in CHIP programs, and people newly eligible for Medicare.

But many of these people don’t understand how their new coverage works, and this can jeopardize the goals of improving Americans’ health, and cutting health care costs we all pay. That’s why the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has launched “From Coverage to Care,” a national initiative to help people understand their benefits, and connect to the primary care and preventive services they need for a long and healthy life.

This webinar, intended for Marketplace assistors*, providers, community and advocacy groups, and stakeholders throughout Region 8 (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, and WY) is a roadmap to provide useful information in an easy-to-use format, including issues such as:

•     How to read and understand an insurance card, and the terms it contains

•     How to find a provider, and be prepared for the first visit with him or her

•     What to do after the visit, and where to go if questions arise

(*)=While this webinar will be of great value to Navigators and Certified Assistance Counselors (CACs), it is not part of the certification process, and cannot substitute for official certification training.
