A New Resource for Information About Medicare

According to a Post on http://newoldage.blogs.nytimes.com/, Medicare’s website, www.medicare.gov, is visited more than 2.5 million times a month by people looking for information, ordering replacement cards or applying for benefits. 

Part of that page is titled Ask Medicare. This section, containing excellent information geared toward family caregivers, has recently been re-designed to make it easier to use.   The site includes basic information on eligibility and coverage, how-to instruction on filing claims,  links to other organizations, and an outstanding library of downloadable fact sheets and pamphlets.   In addition, you can sign up for an e-mail newsletter that provides updates on changes to benefits.  You can also read other caregiver’s stories, and share your own.  In view of all the rumors about what is and is not happening to Medicare, you should be aware of this great source of information directly from the agency.
