Description: 
This training focuses on the basics of Medicare as it relates to behavioral health beneficiaries. Topics include Medicare eligibility for behavioral health consumers, Medicare/Medicaid and how the two work together to provide insurance coverage. A detailed explanation of how both the over and under 65 year old population can qualify for Medicare. We help “front line” staff understand how to best assist mental health consumers with their Medicare and/or Medicaid coverage. We will provide information on how to access Medicare extra help programs, work with “dual eligible” beneficiaries and how to assist consumers in finding affordable prescription drug coverage. We will cover the staff requirements/eligibility to bill Medicare.
