New CMS Coverage to Care Resources Available!

The Coverage to Care initiative is excited to release several new and updated resources to assist with care management.

C2C updated and released Medicare chronic care management (CCM) resources for health care providers and patients to raise awareness of the benefits of CCM for Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions and provide health care providers with information to implement CCM.

Understanding prescriptions is an important part of managing care. C2C also released a new resource focused on understanding prescriptions and drug coverage. View the Tips for Understanding Your Drug Coverage & Prescriptions resource.

Better Understand Your Drug Coverage & Prescriptions

Learning about drug list rules or restrictions, prescription cost, and prescription labels ensure patients, including those with chronic conditions, continue to feel confident in properly managing their care. View the Tips For Understanding Your Drug Coverage & Prescriptions (available in Spanish, with additional languages to be developed) to learn more about the prescriptions and services available under your drug coverage and how to understand your prescriptions once you have them.
