Webinar: Protecting Dual Eligibles from Balance Billing— What Advocates Need to Know

Event Description: 

Justice in Aging is hosting a webinar on what advocates need to know to protect dual eligibles from balance billing. People dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, including Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (QMBs), have special protections against charges for Medicare co-payments and co-insurance. In this national webinar you will hear directly from CMS what is and is not allowed by federal law and learn from advocates what you can do to help your clients. Presenters Kim Glaun, Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office, CMS; and Georgia Burke, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging, will explain who is protected and from what charges, share CMS findings regarding inappropriate billing and agency efforts to address this problem, provide examples of common situations where balance billing occurs, and suggest steps to assist a client who has received a bill or is facing collection. The webinar will take place on Thursday, February 23, 2016 2:00 p.m. ET.
