The series of CORE KNOWLEDGE courses provide the foundational knowledge to enhance or launch a successful career as a patient access professional.
When a Medicare beneficiary is admitted as in inpatient, Medicare requires hospitals to notify the beneficiary of their rights. The mechanism to deliver the message is the “Important Message from Medicare.” In this course, we review the details of the regulation, provide a sample script to explain the form to a beneficiary and we discuss common challenges and potential solutions.
