Medicare NOW Available for Chronic Conditions

Judie Rappaport
June 19, 2014

If you or a loved one has ever been denied continued Medicare coverage for certain services, keep reading. For years, patients who needed and received Medicare-covered services such as physical therapy and home nursing visits, were being denied continued coverage due to a long-standing “improvement standard” that says patients needed to show improvement for Medicare to continue paying.

 

Thanks to a class-action lawsuit, Jimmo v. Sebelious, patients now have the option to appeal to Medicare to continue receiving coverage for certain services – regardless of whether they’ve shown improvement in their condition. This is especially good news for those patients who cannot afford to pay privately for these services and those suffering from chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and more (where continued improvement is not likely).

 

To learn more about this change and how you or a loved one may be entitled to continued care, take a look at the entire article from the Law Offices of Osofsky & Osofsky at: http://www.lawyerforseniors.com/medicare-coverage-now-available-chronic-conditions/
