Medicare for Financial Planners is a 10-module program designed for planners wanting in-depth knowledge of the rules and regulations regarding Medicare to help clients navigate the Medicare maze. While planners can choose to complete the entire program, there is no specific sequence and each course module can be taken individually on its own.
In this course, you will learn about the coverage and costs under Original Medicare Part B, also known as medical insurance. You will learn about key areas of Part B coverage: outpatient care, doctors’ services, preventive care, home health care, and durable medical equipment. We’ll also explore how the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services set the Part B premium and deductible each year. Finally, we’ll talk about how copays/coinsurances vary depending on the type of service a beneficiary receives and whether the provider is a participating, non-participating, or opt-out provider.
