Written primarily for attorneys and advocates, this text is intended to help ensure that all Medicare beneficiaries get the coverage to which they are entitled. This edition, which has been updated to include information about prescription drug coverage ("Plan D") gives a general introduction to Medicare coverage and appeals and then explains coverage for patients in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health care and hospices. It describes the role of supplemental medical insurance, Medicare Advantage and its coordinated care plans and private fee-for-service, Medigap services, Medicare's relationship with private insurance, and dual eligibility, when Medicare beneficiaries are also available for Medicaid. This edition pays particularly close attention to appeals processes.
